A: Short answer yes, it happens all the time.

Most often from traffic cameras, but that is not the only source.

The fact that the ticket can be issued that way doesn't mean that these tickets can't be beaten though. A ticket that was issued by mail almost always has problems with is that make it easier to win in court. Probably a good idea to call an attorney who practices in the court where the ticket was issued and find out what your options are.
