Senate Bill 1184, Section 542.202 of the Texas Transportation Code allows the City of Plano impose civil penalties on people who run red lights.
This amendment authorizes municipalities to impose civil penalties against the owner of a motor vehicle for a violation of a municipal ordinance. City of Plano Municipal Code of Ordinances, Chapter 12 establishes that “the owner of a motor vehicle is liable for a civil penalty of seventy-five dollars ($75.00) if, while facing only a steady red signal displayed by an electrically operated traffic-control signal located in the city, the vehicle is operated in violation of the instructions of that traffic-control signal, as specified by Texas Transportation Code, Section 544.007(d).”
Senate Bill 1119, Texas Transportation Code Chapter 707 establishes procedures for local entities using red-light cameras.
If you turn right on red without stopping at the light, you can get a Notice of Violation. Texas Transportation Code, Section 544.007(d) instructs drivers turning right on red to do so only once it is safe to do so, they have yielded to pedestrians lawfully in an adjacent crosswalk and other traffic lawfully using the intersection.
You can make a payment for a Notice of Violation by personal check, money order or Visa/MasterCard. No cash payments are accepted.
