Thank you for that information. I don't want to make the wrong assumption about your question--are you asking what the expected consequences are for ignoring a red light camera ticket from Beverly Hills?
Wow, what a quick reply! I want to know if I can ignore this ticket.
Does the fact that I was not the driver help me in any way possible?
Thank you for the reply. I will make sure to provide you a good review. However, I do have more things I want to talk about with you, if that is okay with you of course.
Here's a quote I read from an article: L.A. City Councilman Paul Koretz said of GC Services, "They'll never actually make you pay, and they won't put it on your credit." So I don't know if your statement is valid or not.
I've just read so many things regarding this topic. For example, I've read about the existence of snitch tickets... I've read that the LA County as a whole has shut down the program and the State Law has banned the red camera system due to its illegitimate existence, but for some reason the Beverly Hills is still enforcing this thing.
I do appreciate that additional information and I understand the uncertainty that has been caused by Beverly Hills bucking the trend and still administering tickets. However, my answer actually remains the same.
I see I see. It's just that I'm a college student and I can't afford the $500 at any time soon. Do you know anyone who actually decided to ignore the red light camera ticket from Beverly Hills PD specifically and what happened to that person?
*Sigh so considering all cases, it would be best to just pay the ticket huh?
You're right. If the ticket gets transferred to the collections agency, do I get some time to pay for it before it affects my credit? And if it does affect my credit, does it affect the score permanently?
If it gets transferred to a collection agency, it will have appeared on your credit. The only way to avoid it appearing on your credit report is to pay it when it is first due.
No credit score is ever permanent.
