You or someone on your behalf can dispute in person. Bring your ticket to one of the following:
If you register your dispute by mail, include the following in a letter:
Mail your letter, along with a photocopy of the front of your ticket, to:
Ticket Dispute Processing
Victoria, B.C., V8W 3P7
Your dispute must be post-marked within 30 calendar days from the date the ticket was served to you. There is no need to include court evidence such as videos or pictures.
To complete an allegation dispute, you'll need to appear in court. Your court date will be mailed to you by the Provincial Court Registry. If the court date doesn't work for you, reschedule it by contacting your local court. If you miss your court date you'll have to pay the ticket.
If you're disputing the fine amount or are requesting more time to pay, you won't have to appear in court.
Red light tickets received in the mail are issued to the owner of the vehicle. If someone else was driving and should be responsible, it's possible to nominate another driver and have it moved to their name. To do this, both you and the other driver need to agree and submit an application. If the application is approved, a new ticket will be issued and served in person to the other driver.
If you can't agree or the application is rejected, the vehicle owner is responsible for paying the fine.
To nominate another driver:
If the original ticket has been personally served, you can't nominate another driver.
If you own a commercial vehicle (for example, a taxi, bus or truck) and receive a red light camera ticket, points will be added to your National Safety Code profile.
Don't take the chance of missing your court date notice in the mail. If you've recently moved, ensure they have your information on file. To confirm or update your address, directly contact your local court.
