Hello. I'll be happy to assist you.

To answer your second question first, yes, it will go on your license and potentially increase your insurance rates. To answer your other question about whether it is worth fighting, that really depends on the photo.

Expert:  Chris T., JD replied 9 months ago.

The weakness of these kinds of tickets is that the driver is not properly identified. It can only be done through the picture of you supposedly speeding. Of course, the quality of that picture and whether it can identify you depends on the angle, time of day, etc.

So, is it possible to defend photo radar tickets successfully? Yes, but it depends largely on the picture.

Expert:  Chris T., JD replied 9 months ago.

It is not sufficient for them to say that your car was speeding, and the car is registered to you, therefore you are guilty of speeding.
