Customer Question
AZ while visiting me in...
My grandson-in-law got three speeding tickets in El Mirage, AZ while visiting me in Surprise, AZ within four days. They were all camera shots....like going 60 in a 45 miles per zone. He owes $750 or more. Would a traffic lawyer be able to get any of these tickets reduced in price?

Hello and welcome,

Do you know whether your grandson-in-law was personally served with notice of the violations?

He received two letters in the mail from El Mirage Police. The letters arrived at his address in Lincoln, NE
Traffic Lawyer: Tina, Attorney replied 5 years ago
Arizona courts have held that an individual must be personally served with a red light camera citation. Since he was not personally served, an attorney could likely get the citations dismissed, but he should not acknowledge the citations in writing as that would typically constitute a waiver of the requirement for personal service.

Here is a link that provides more information on this:

My grand son-in-law got two speeding tickets called SPEED PHOTO RADAR SYSTEM 57/45 shows his photo in El Mirage AZ and mailed to his home in Lincoln NE and one red light says photo entering an intersection on a red light also in El Mirage AZ and mailed to his home in Lincoln, NE. I would like to know if it would pay him to hire an AZ attorney to try to get these tickets thrown out of court, reduced in amount, or whatever? Or should he just pay them? They are like $750. He was not aware of such things as cameras! They do not have such things in Lincoln, NE! He is also concerned about his driver's license...points and his insurance rates.

Yes, I did, but I still wanted to know if you thought it would be worth while to hire an attorney or just to pay the tickets and forget it
Traffic Lawyer: Tina, Attorney replied 5 years ago
I most definitely think he should retain an attorney since he was not personally served, as that would typically be grounds to have the citations dismissed, and he would be relieved from having to pay any of the fines.

He can actually ignore the citations if he was not personally served, but it would be best to have them dismissed altogether so no action may be taken against him by the state.
