If I am on probation for a speeding ticket, is it necessary for me to report a red light camera ticket to my probation office?

Saint Louis, MO |

I may or may not have gotten a ticket, but I want to know if I need to inform the probation officer about this as it is an infraction. Thanks

Always err on the side of telling, rather than withholding. A red light camera ticket does not carry points, but I would tell my probation officer if I got so much as a parking ticket. Let them determine the importance.

Keep a record of such communications. Send an email. That way, it won't waste too much of their time and you'll have a paper trail (electronic is fine) of compliance.

Please be careful about what private information or case-specific information you post on this open forum. This is public and not subject to attorney-client privilege! Also, if the advice provided was helpful, please be so kind as to post a review on this website.

Absolutely. For one, you are required. Two, it shows you are trying to abide by the rules. That will go far if you ever slip up.

NEVER describe your facts in an online forum. I have CONFIRMED there is at least ONE county prosecutor that is a member of this site. My statements are my opinion solely based on the information provided, and that opinion can be wrong if your facts are different than what I believed them to be. If you have any further questions, you can contact me at 636-532-1400 or through my website

Report the red light camera ticket, but since it's a non-moving violation, it won't affect your probation.
