    Default Red Light Cameras! Ugh!

    I went through an intersection today that has one of those red light cameras...as i approached, the light turned yellow, i pressed down on the gas pedal, i was half-way thru the intersection, light turned red, camera flashed and i was kicking myself! Why oh why didn't i just stop at the yellow? I know this intersection too...it's notorious for nailing people. Even tho i know i was still legally correct in crossing the intersection, that camera "evidence" may say otherwise. I don't trust it.

    Los Angeles county recently dismissed all red light camera tickets b/c the county was actually losing money on them AND b/c the data didn't show the system was making intersections safer. Unfortunately, Pasadena still enforces RLC.

    I'm hoping that i crossed in time and i won't get a ticket in the mail. What sux big time is the ticket is close to $500! that's a lot of kibble!!:angry2:

    Omg $500?!?!?! That's insane!!! Does it affect your license in any way (points, etc)? In NJ it's no points, around $100 BUT the owner of the vehicle is responsible (which is different from most moving violations here).

    @Chunksmama, i heard the ticket wil not affect my points on my driving record; once the tix is paid, that's it, as it's more of a revenue generator than anything else.

    That's good. I mean - they can't prove who was actually driving so it shouldn't. I just can't believe it's THAT expensive. That seems excessive and ridiculous! I have my fingers crossed for you!!!

    $500.00 that's crazy, it's only $75.00 here in Houston. I think if I were you I'd fight it too. Good luck.
