Skubiak & Rivas, P.A. of Orlando Florida has seen an uptick in the number of cases involving red light cameras and they are challenging all of them in court.
Orlando, FL (PRWEB) February 25, 2012
In 2010, Florida joined 30 other states in support of the Mark Wandall Traffic Safety Act (WPSC) requiring counties to enact an ordinance utilizing traffic infraction technology to identify vehicles failing to stop at red light signals. As a result, the law offices of Skubiak & Rivas, P.A. have seen a dramatic increase in number of cases involving red light citations during the past 3 months in Central Florida.
“Orlando, like many cities across the country, is making use of red light cameras to generate revenue. It is important that if you are ticketed due to a red light camera, you consult a lawyer immediately to understand your rights,” said Robert Skubiak, attorney of Skubiak & Rivas, P.A.
The firm has seen an uptick in the number of cases involving red light cameras and they are challenging all of them in court. Adam McGinnis, attorney, with Skubiak & Rivas, said, “I haven't lost one of these in front of a judge in probably 6 or 7 months.”
According to a WFTV 9 story that aired February 6, 2012, two-thirds of ticked drivers simply pay the fines to clear their records. However, of those cases that do go to court, many are thrown out because it’s difficult for law enforcement to get critical video entered into evidence.
Skubiak added, “Even with attorney fees, it’s often less expensive when defendants fight and win their cases in court rather than simply paying the fines.”
