    Default Photo-Radar and Red-Light cameras in Oregon

    I just moved here to Portland and am trying to get a handle on how these work in this state. Here are my questions:

    1. Do photo-radar and/or red-light cameras take a picture of both your front AND back license plates? Or just the back plate?

    2. If you get a ticket from one of these, does it actually go on your record? I know in some states if you pay the fine to this independent company it won't go on your driving record.

    3. How much are the fines? Or do they vary based on your speed or how bad you ran the redlight?

    Thanks for the info!

    1. They take pictures of both the front and back. I know this for a fact.

    Red light cameras in NC take pictures of just the back.

    Do they take pictures of the front even on red light cameras? I wouldn't think so, since you are driving through the intersection....unless they have a camera farther ahead that could get the front too.
