The issue is not whether there are cameras or not, the issue is whether there was reasonable suspicion for the stop in the first place. I work in Lehigh County, feel free to give me a call and we can talk about your case.
I agree with Mr. Keller. Getting a reduction in a license suspension matter is up to Penndot. I often get questions about licenses from DUI clients, who are under the mistaken belief that the judicial system handles the issue.
