Red Light Tickets

A new decision just came out regarding the admissibility of those pesky red light ticket photographs. In People v. Khaled, the court of appeals had held that an adequate foundation must be established about the accuracy and reliability of the system before the red light camera photos can be used against you in court. In People v. Goldsmith, however, decided last month, a different court of appeals took a different view. If data is computer generated, the data is presumed to be accurate and the opponent of the evidence must demonstrate its unreliability in order to keep it out.
