    I received a speeding fine in the mail. On checking with my bank, I found that I was not anywhere near the location at which I was supposedly filmed at, as I had made purchases at a different location. What do I do under Traffic Law, or do I just wear it as I have been told that the speed cameras are never wrong?

    They are regularly wrong and you should demand the photo and see how clear the plate number is.

    Years ago, if the plate couldn't be seen clearly, they would make up a number close to it. If you have doubts, get any supporting evidence to show you were nowhere near that location and start the objection process.

    Speed cameras are scientific instruments, and are presumed correct.
    But that presumption is rebuttable - using evidence that the vehicle could well have been elsewhere.

    Look on the back of the ticket for instructions on how to deal with it.
    But understand that mere insistence is not enough.
