Apparently that is not the case. They cant put out arrest warrants for photo tickets. But they can threaten to impound your car.

Warrant. They won't come looking for him, but if he ever gets pulled over again, a simple traffic stop may turn into a ride in the back of a cop car.

Unfortunately, this. Big brother is clamping down to help pay the bills.

They can't go after your credit or give you a bench warrant, but if the Camera van catches his car parked on a city street, they will boot it.

That's probably because they can't prove who was driving the car at the time of the incident, they know what car it was though so they'll screw someone over either way.

This is what they want you to think. Its wrong though.

But you did not sign a ticket promising to appear in court, which is the exact reason we are made to sign tickets. This kind of ticket goes to the car and by default its owner, not a particular driver.
In fact you do not have to even be a licensed driver to get one of these tickets. All you have to do is own a car that gets caught.

Got one on Charters 36 in a 25. fricking chicken shite. But I was on my way to a bid walk through and the company paid it. The GM got a 50 in a 25 and laugh at me being so slow.

Interesting, I did not know this. Also, I thought they were doing away with camera tickets in New Orleans altogether. Something about a dispute over money between the city and the company that provides the cameras?

Good to know that they don't issue bench warrants for this petty shit, but I guess you have to pay it in the end regardless.

It's the same camera for running a red light, but apparently has radar capability as well.

Pay the ticket. A buddy of mine got pulled over for a random suspicion of DUI. He wasn't drunk just coming home from work late. However upon them finding out he had failure to appear for or pay speeding tickets he went to jail for about 5 days til he could get out o bond after seeing a judge. Don't F around with speeding tickets. Just pay them and move on.
