Judge Upholds Legality of Rochester Red-Light Camera Program

, New York Law Journal


Lawrence Krieger, an attorney whose vehicle was among those caught on camera, had challenged the constitutionality of the program, claiming it violated his substantive and procedural due process rights.

What's being said

  • The NYS Supreme Court has made its ruling and found the Rochester red light camera law satisfies "minimum due process" requirements and is constitutional.

    I respect the Court and the Judge's ruling - but believe not enough weight was given NY cases which are more protective of individual rights.

    A Notice Of Appeal from the Decision will be filed.

    In the mean time, look what the "court of public opinion" thinks about the Rochester red light camera system. Is it really about "Public Safety" or is that a pretext to just "Raise Revenue" for the City - which spends the cash generated as fast as the City can collect it for general operations (not traffic safety).

    Seems to me this is an illegal tax, and another sign of tyranny of the state on the citizens. Are we now serfs or subjects?
    To say you can sue the drive turns the citizen in to an arm of the law. The judge must be a Liberal who owes his seat to the local political machine. To say there is no defense, is contradictory to our National laws and fairness.
