Traffic Tickets Vary from City to City
Different cities and counties handle traffic tickets differently. The process can be confusing to the average driver, but we’ve got years of experience with all aspects of “the system”. In this County Guide, we share information to help you with a traffic ticket in Long Beach County.
In the Long Beach area, traffic related rules are quite comprehensive. Below are a few pieces of traffic ticket information related to Long Beach:
Red Light Tickets in Long Beach
The City of Long Beach implemented a photo red light camera program to reduce the number of traffic accidents caused by running red lights.
According to their website, these are currently at the following intersections:
- 7th Street / Redondo Ave
- Bellflower Blvd / Willow St
- Cherry Ave / Artestia Blvd
- Wardlow Rd. / Long Beach Blvd
- and Anaheim St. / Long Beach Blvd.
Parking Tickets in Long Beach
Long Beach is similar to other areas, as they post no-parking / no-stopping signs on the side of the road. However, be sure to look carefully for these to make sure you’re not parking illegally.
One thing that is unique about Long Beach, but does of course happen in other areas too, is that you’re not allowed to park vehicles in alleys.
Although this shouldn’t influence what you do with your ticket, the LA Times reported that the City of Long Beach had more than $17 million in uncollected parking tickets in 2012.
Long Beach DUI Checkpoints
The city publishes DUI checkpoints to the public, which you can find through public records or private firms.
