I was not the driver
I got a citation that really belongs to someone else. How do I clear it?
Non Photo Redlight Citation
If you believe that you have received a citation or notice from the court in error because someone else used your name or other identification, you should sign up for Walk In Court and bring your proof of identification.
Walk-In Court is available at the following Courthouses:
Oakland/Berkeley: Wiley Manuel Courthouse
Photo Redlight Citation
After a red light camera photograph is taken, the vehicle's registered owner will receive a citation in the mail. It will also include instructions about what to do next, including what to do if you, the registered owner, are not the person pictured behind the wheel.
NOT THE DRIVER? DO NOT PAY THE CITATION IF YOU PLAN TO REQUEST IT BE TAKEN OUT OF YOUR NAME
If you are the owner and someone else is driving, do the following:
- Complete the "OPTION A: AFFIDAVIT OF NON-LIABILITY-IF YOU WERE NOT THE DRIVER" section on the 'Affidavit of Non Liability With BAIL' document.
- Use the pre-printed return address for the Photo Redlight Vendor to send the document back for processing.
