Stupid Groomsman......

So DH had a letter come today in the mail, and he just got home from work and opened it and it's a 287 dollar ticket for running a red light the day before our wedding...we checked the time and watched the video of it online and it's one of his flippen groomsmen that borrowed our truck!!


He initially wanted to just pay it and not tell the GM but I sent him a facebook message about it because there's no way in hell we are paying that ticket!! Grrrrr.....

Can't you just let them know that it wasn't you? It's not like the ticket is for the car. It's for the driver.

No it's photo radar so it is for the car not the driver. They just send you a picture and a ticket in the mail. It doesn't matter who is driving.

Where do you live? I mean, if I were you, I'd take it to court. They really can't charge you for the "crime" of another, kwim?

It's an Alberta thing. They set up trucks on the sides of the road with cameras in them that either take a picture or a video of a vehicle running reds, or speeding. Then they run the license plate and send the ticket out to the owner of the vehicle. There is no way to proove it wasn't you driving, and the owner of the vehicle is responsable for paying the fine.

Oh dumb. I guess I assumed you were in the states! Sorry! Even the video can't prove it? Ugh. That would seriously make me mad.

i got a ticket like this (my mother was driving) I refused to pay it..well it never got paid by her (she totally forgot about it) It went to collections...when I called to talk to them about it they said that somewhere on the letter you recieved there is a spot to say that it was not you who was driving the vehichle..they told me that if I had read it more closely and checked that it wasnt me and mailed it back I wouldnt be responsible for it!

I got a ticket like that some years back in my FBIL's car. They sent him a ticket w/ the pic. I paid cause it was my fault. Hopefully he will do the same.

A similar thing happened to me with an ex. He took MY car and drove it through an EZ Pass when I didn't have one. They took a picture of it and they only care about the car that the the "crime" not the person- eventually he did pay for it.


 


I'm sure if the groomsmen knew what he did and wanted to pay for it he will still do it.

Same thing happened to DH while we were driving his uncle's truck in NY back in '07.  We paid the ticket of course.  It was so embarassing to my DH. :o(
