It may be days or weeks before a person is notified of a traffic violation recorded by a camera, the executive director of ACLU-CT told a legislative committee. "Presently, when someone receives a traffic violation," Andrew Schneider said at a public hearing, "the officer who provides the ticket makes the motorist immediately aware of the violation. . . . The longer time duration makes it more difficult to recall details and adversely affects the driver's ability to challenge the ticket."
Those were among reasons cited in ACLU-CT's opposition to four bills raised this year that would allow red-light traffic cameras.
