Just got this in the mail, I saw the video and I rolled a right turn.  Ticket is for $510, anyone ever try fighting it or trying to get it lowered?  It's not like I ran the red light though, I just rolled a right turn, could I argue that to the judge?

Don't even waste your time or money going to the judge....they hear hundreds of excuses daily from people trying to plead their innocence. You obviously didn't come to a complete stop before making the right, so you really don't have a leg to stand on if you were to go to the court. Pay the fine and remember to stop next time.

They sent you a video of you running the light? That's a waste of money, no wonder the state is broke. Anyways, send them a video of you writing a check but no check with it.

And I agree, running a red light should be a lighter fine.

No point in fighting it...they got the evidence.  Just take the L and dont do it again.

they have to personally serve you a ticket...that violates your constitutional rights, and your voiding your right to the legal process by just sending in your money heres info how to fight these in cali...everyone saying to just pay they have proof obviously doesnt know the legal process

They got me for 300+ last year in Oct. It was my fault but someone found a loophole in the system so i'm getting reimbursed (still waiting). They said that there was never a public meeting over the cameras which is required hence the refunds. OP maybe you can look into if you have the time.
