We have often been asked about the procedure the City of Dayton employs to enforce its photo-enforcement scheme which encompasses both speed tickets and red-light tickets. Here, taken from the Dayton Public Safety Photo Enforcement page is the procedure that the city has adopted. If you need to speak to an attorney, we let you know how to contact us below.
View Video of Your Violation and Pay On-Line
If you receive a citation in the mail from the “SafeLight” Dayton Public Safety Photo Enforcement Program for running a red light at one of the City’s “SafeLight” camera-enforced intersections can view the video of the violation and pay the fine on-line. To view the video, you must enter the “City Code” (DAY) and the “Citation Notice Number” that appears on your citation form. The video images will only be available to the viewer for 60 days . Clicking on the following link will take you to the website outside of the City of Dayton’s domain: www.photonotice.com
No points are imposed against the violator’s driving record under the SafeLight Photo Enforcement Program.
Tthere are three (3) options to resolve the citation:
- Pay the fine within fifteen (15) days. You can pay your citation fee online by credit or debit card, or by sending a check by mail as indicated on the citation notice (“Notice of Liability”).
- Within fifteen (15) days, provide the information of the the person that was actually driving the vehicle, if it was not the registered owner, then mail the notorized ”Affidavit” to the adress shown on the citation.
- Within fiteen (15) days, return the “Hearing Request” to have the dispute scheduled to be heard before a Hearing Officer.
Failure to act on the above options will result in default and a $25.00 late fee will be added to the fine amount. The responsible party will then receive a “Default Notice.”
If the responsible party does not respond to the “Default Notice,”, the citation will be sent to a collection agency.
If the responsible party chooses to have an administrative hearing to appeal the citation, the $85.00 citation fee must be paid prior to the notice due date. If the citation is paid, the following will occur:
- An appeal hearing will be held before a Hearing Officer.
- If the hearing Officer finds in favor of the City that a violation did occur, the $85.00 will be retained by the City to satisfy the citation amount.
- If the Hearing Officer finds in favor of the responsible party, the $85.00 citation fee will be refunded.
- If the responsible party fails to show for the hearing, the $85.00 citation fee will be retained to satisfy the fine amount.
