Receiving a Violation

Based upon images captured by the automated system, your vehicle was determined to have committed a red light violation. As the vehicle owner, the Notice of Violation is mailed to you.

The fine is $75 for each offense.

You must pay the civil penalty on or before the due date on your Notice of Violation. The due date for payment is located on the top and bottom right of your Notice of Violation.

Request a Hearing
You may contest the imposition of the civil penalty by requesting an administrative hearing. You must sign the coupon on the back of the Notice of Violation and mail it in the enclosed envelope so that it is received by the due date stated on the front of the Notice. When the administrative hearing is scheduled, you will be notified of the location, date, and time of your hearing.

If you request a hearing and fail to appear at the time and place of the hearing, it is considered an admission of liability and a waiver of your right to appeal the imposition of the civil penalty. The request for an administrative hearing may subject the violator to an administration fee if found liable or if a Failure to Appear judgment is made.

Submit a Declaration of Non-Liability
If you feel that you received the violation in error under one of the affirmative defenses outlined in the City of Cleveland ordinance, you may submit a Declaration of Non-Liability by mail, or you may submit the Declaration of Non-Liability at an Administrative Hearing. The Declaration of Non-Liability form can be obtained from Violation Info. You will need your Notice Number and PIN printed on the front of the violation notice.
