But at least one local motorist who got a ticket in the mail is raising questions about these tickets. He sent KEEL News a picture of the ticket he got showing a photo of his truck that was captured by the cameras. He says the photo does not show who is driving the truck. He questions how the ticket will hold up in court if he decides to challenge it. The city gets a piece of the revenue and the private company that installed the cameras gets the rest.
