How do I fight a red light ticket if there is no evidence / image? What do I say or do?

Asked about 1 year ago - Brooklyn, NY

I received a notice of "impending default judgement" in the mail today on a red light ticket with the violation date of 3/27/13; back in April/May I received the original notice of the ticket with no picture. I immediately looked up the ticket online to see if there was an image and there wasn't. I requested the image be sent to my attention and was given an extension till I received the evidence. I never got the evidence but I did receive this notice today with penalties added on for lateness. How do I fight this?
