No you've been misinformed. A moving violation is not treated the same as a traffic ticket for any reason. The DMV doesn't care how many traffic tickets you get as long as you pay them. Many moving violations are also crimes and/or may add points to your record. There are ways to fight camera tickets but you need a traffic attorney to do it.

In NY, for what it is worth, a camera ticket is no points.
