I'm pretty sure if you reported your car stolen, then they wouldn't be sending you tickets.. to get a ticket, doesn't it require some sort of police interaction? At least on some level? You know, the same police that would have the report on it being stolen? It just doesnt seem to make sense..
Actually the camera's are all run by a private company. Police interaction doesn't go beyond an officer looking at the photo's and determining that there was a violation, signing it and having it sent out. He will have to make a court appearance but it's pretty easy to get that dismissed.
You would think that, but they most likely don't check to see if the car is stolen when they review the photos. An actual person checks those and all they really check to see is if they have a clear picture of the plate and the driver. Anything else would add usually unnecessary steps. As long as the car was reported stolen, the OP shouldn't be held accountable for those tickets, and they can actually make a good attempt to track down the car and thief.
#64 I'm guessing the ticket was more then $5 so while it sucks, it could have been a lot worse. But if were going to count up how much money you lost, you can't forget the time and effort "time money" you put into getting it dismissed. And it does seem rather lame you had to give the police a police report.
#4 u fail at life they just messed up. And FYL if they gave u speeding tickets from a camera they can probably see the person in it
