The red light cameras are only programed to capture your vehicle if you enter the intersection when the light is red.If you enter when the light is yellow and then it turns red when you are already in the intersection, you will not receive a ticket.The technology is also used to catch drivers who block intersections or fail to stop at a stop sign, pay a toll, drive past a stopped school bus or disobey a railroad crossing signal.The District of Columbia uses automated enforcement to cite drivers who fail to yield to pedestrians.
If you feel as if your violation was unmerited, you may contest it in court.
Speed camera programs are less common, but increasing.
Ten states prohibit localities from using red light cameras, speed cameras, or both.
The camera will take two pictures and record 12 seconds of video.
Your notification will include the date, time, and the intersection location.
