Red Light Camera Violation

Has anyone here ever tried to contest a red light camera violation? Any luck?

Just got one in the mail yesterday, and I remember when it happened. I was rolling up in the right-hand turn lane and the light was green. There was a wet patch (possibly slick) just past the line, so I slowed down and continued with the turn. But when I looked up the light had changed to red and I saw the flash. I didn't even see the yellow light because I had my eye on the possibly icy patch. It seems like they shorten the length of yellow lights at those intersections so that they can nab more people.

Anyway, it's not that big of a deal. I was just wondering if there's a chance of it getting thrown out if I show up to court and explain the circumstances.

You were turning right? You wont get a ticket. It can't tell if you stopped or not, it only took the picture because you were in the intersection.

Not true. There is a website on the ticket with video. At least there was with my ticket. It showed me turning right without coming to a complete stop.

Oh, never mind, you already got a ticket. Just say you stopped and turned right. They only have a picture of you in the intersection, they don't know if you stopped or not.

I think.

ol, when I got the ticket you could tell by the picture I was turning right. I got all uppity and said I was going to fight it all the way to the MAYOR's office! Kidding about that but I was going to fight it until I went and checked what was on the website, it was a video showing me roll through the red light, illegal by the letter of the law, but pretty scammy nonetheless. $100 ****ing dollars for not coming to a complete stop before turning right.

It's a stop sign, not a slow down sign. And it's a law, not a suggestion.

Actually, its a stop light, not a stop sign. Stop signs don' give you a half second warning before they appear.

I was able to view the video of the incident online, and it was yellow for much longer than a half a second. Upon further review, I was clearly in the wrong. The light was yellow before I even entered the frame, and it turned red a split second before I hit the line.

So I'll take my lumps and pay the fine. It mentions that it's "an ordinance violation and no points will be assessed", so at least I don't have to worry about that.

neither do stop lights. light durations, including yellows, are mandated by DOT regs.

As much as I hate to say it but, I think the camras are a good thing. Intersection accidents were getting out of control down here because so many dumbasses thought that yellow meant "floor that bitch".

Maybe we should put cameras in all public places! That way no bad guys could ever get us!

These are only fines.

It's not an actual moving violation that goes on your record.

That is how they are in Ohio. My sister got one in the Dayton area 2 years ago.

She failed to pay it and got a notice from a collection agency. No record of this with the courts.
