How does a red light camera ticket affect your auto insurance in London?
If you’re a recipient of a red light camera ticket it will typically not affect the premium you pay for car insurance in London. The reason for this is because there’s no real way to know for certain who was behind the wheel of your car at the time of the infraction. What is known, however, is who owns the car and as the registered owner of the vehicle, you’re on the hook to pay the ticket.
Red light tickets issued by a police officer, on the other hand, will likely affect the rate you pay for your auto insurance in London. Police-issued red light tickets also come with three demerit points.
Both tickets, whether received in the mail or handed delivered by a police officer, will run you about $325.
