How to check if your car got a ticket?

I think I ran a traffic camera while leaving my house in Miami Beach the other day—I saw a bright flash of light during the day passing the intersection, and I know there's a camera around there. Is there any way I can check if I got ticketed or not?

Answer
Good question! Traffic cameras are often hidden, and identifying whether you got ticketed or not will help you prepare for any increases in your car insurance policy. Begin by navigating to your state’s official website section on policing and follow their link until you can search up the license plate registry in your state. Here’s what to do:
  • In the License Plate Search Field, fill in your license plate number
  • Select the correct state of issue
  • Select your corresponding vehicle type
After entering this information, there should be a field where you can enter your personal ID information. The registry search results should return your first and last name, and you will be able to view all previous and current tickets and warrants.
Remember that an outstanding ticket can raise the price of your car insurance.
