    I just got one.

    1) The light looks like it's yellow in the pic and video.

    2) If it was red, it shouldn't matter cause I was making a right hand turn.

    $80 if i don't fight the Man. This is some bullshit. :mad:

    Don't pay it. You can fight it and you will win.

    My GF got one while driving my car wearing sunglasses. I went in to the PD to fight it. I said, it's obviously not me in the photo. They asked if I knew who it was, I said no, they dropped the charges!

    Right turn on a red exiting the tollway. Slowed down, but didn't come close to a full stop. Saw the video, didn't fight it, 100 dolla.

    Depends on your state, but DO NOT PAY!!!

    I've gotten 1 red light camera, 1 speeding ticket and one parking ticket in LA, and I fought and won every one!

    You can demand trial by letter, don't even waste your time in court.

    I've gotten quite a few. It doesn't go on your license since they don't know who was driving. So it's the equivalent of a parking ticket.

    Just pay it and be done with it.

    if you do fight it, the least that'll happen is your fine will be reduced by about 50%. might not be worth your time to save $40

    For $300, I'd call up and report my car stolen.

    Avery lives in some fucking hick ass, hayseed sucking community that just got around to red light cameras. :rofl:


    Don't worry, this is how it's going to play out. Don't bother paying the ticket, because there is going to be a lawsuit that declares them to be unconstitutional and illegal, which they will be found to be, and then your community will remove them.


    At least that is how we did it out here. 5 years ago. :giggle:

    Over here by me, most of these red light cameras are located in wealthy areas, great income generators. They know that the individuals driving around there are most likely wealthy, and it's easier to pay than to argue.

    While stopped at a red light i've watched them, the ones i've seen in action were totally off, the flash from the camera goes off one-to-two seconds before the yellow-red comes on.

    Listen pal, just because you can manipulate a photo, doesn't make you a red light camera expert. WTF are you talking about? Maybe they're supposed to do that.

    :c
