A red light ticket will cost you anywhere between $50 and $500, depending on the jurisdiction. For example, in some California jurisdictions, the fee for running a red light is $500, and that includes a refresher course at a driving school. While other cities determine the cost of running a red light in the $200-plus range. Some cities are considering cutting the red light ticket fee. Note that in some states, like Massachusetts, where the red light fine is between $50 and $100, it is also considered a moving violation. This means you will have a six-year surcharge on your car insurance, which will effectively raise the cost of the ticket considerably.
