youll only get one if it was a blatant violation

as in, you entered the intersection after the light was red for at least a second

if you were trying to run a yellow and barely missed, youll be ok

you may not have gotten one.
Not all cameras in the city are in operation, only some of them and they rotate around the city. So even if they flash, it doesn't mean you'll get a ticket in the mail for sure.:)

They took my picture once for making a right turn. In the second picture I am sure they saw me giving them the finger...

Question:

There is a red light camera at the intersection of 52nd ST and Memorial Drive...the cam is on the northband lane facing Memorial Drive

I was on the 52nd st turning left to get onto Memorial Drive, and it was a green light and I pulled up waitin to turn, and a couple cars blew past the yellows so I waited for them to pass and finally when I could turn, it was a red light....so I just went since I was already in the middle of the road....

Does the camera bust ppl turning on a red even tho its not even on the same lane?

If you're already in the intersection before the light turns red, the camera wouldn't be set off. Only if you're approaching the stop line at a significant speed when the light turns red.

This is what I understand how the red light camera works...

Well I dunno,

I was already in the intersection trying to turn when it was green, but I hope I dont get it cuz the red light camera is on the Memorial Drive for ppl going Northbound,

And I was on 52nd turning left onto Memorial soooo

You have to blatantly run the red to get a ticket. There's even a grace period of 0.5 seconds or 1.0 seconds. So it has to turn red and then one second later you have to run the light...

Red Light camera tickets are 500 bucks man... Sorry to say, my friend got on bout a month ago... They suck... Two pics are taken, once for entering the intersection on a red light and one for almost leaving the intersection....

Go to howstuffworks.com

they have agood explanation on how they work.

basically a sensor turns on when the light is red, if you car goes through the intersection when the ligh is red it will take a picture of you going through, and of you when you get through.

this is so you cant say you missed your turn and were turning after the lights.
