Traffic Cam Citations

TCA 55-8-198 states:

“A traffic citation that is based solely upon evidence obtained from a surveillance camera that has been installed to enforce or monitor traffic violations shall be considered a non-moving traffic violation.” This means that traffic camera tickets are not listed or posted to anyone’s MVR.

The owner of a vehicle subject to a camera citation will not be responsible for the violation if:

On or before the court date the owner furnishes the court an affidavit stating the name and address of the person that had control of the vehicle at the time of the violation.

If the vehicle or plates were stolen at the time of the violation the owner has thirty (30) days from the mailing date of the citation to furnish an affidavit denying the owner was the operator and furnish a certified copy of the police report reflecting the theft.
