    If the photo is properly authenticated for use in court, it will be admitted as evidence against you.

    The guy who sent in a letter saying "It's a waste of time to try these tickets" says he got a dismissal, but odds are that had nothing to do with his letter beyond his "not guilty" plea. Odds are there was a defect in the city's case or evidence. He's also in D.C. which, last I checked, is not in Texas.

    A camera is not your accuser so there would never be a right to "face your accusor" in terms of the camera. You do have a right to examine the evidence against you. I have never heard of a person's rights to examine the evidence and even challenge any possible certification, validation, or verification that the system used complies with any applicable legal requirements to be used as a source of evidence.

    So, your argument of a 6th amendment defense based on the camera being your accusor is an erroneous argument.
