Were you in a car accident in Monroe, Georgia because the at-fault driver ran a red light?

If so, you may be wondering how you can prove this.  Please see below the different ways you can prove the at-fault driver ran the red light.

POLICE SURVEILLANCE CAMERAS

Many police departments now have surveillance cameras located around their jurisdiction to help track and prevent crime.  Many of these cameras are located around busy intersections.

Make sure to check with your local police department to see if it has a camera at the intersection where your accident occurred.  If it does, request the video be preserved.

Many police cameras record on a loop, so the video is not saved permanently, but only for a short period of time.  Make sure to act quickly so the video is properly saved.

LOCAL BUSINESS SURVEILLANCE CAMERAS

Many businesses now have surveillance cameras, so check with the businesses near the intersection where your accident occurred to see if any cameras record the intersection.

Like police cameras, most business surveillance cameras record on a loop, so the video is not saved permanently, but only for a short period of time.

Make sure to act quickly so the video is properly saved.

EYEWITNESSES

Make sure to gather name and contact information for any eyewitnesses at the scene of the accident.

These people will be your most valuable witnesses.  A great way to preserve evidence is to ask them to give a video interview to you on your phone at the scene of the accident.

This will lock in their testimony while the eyewitness’ memory is the most fresh.
