Red Light Camera Question

It was around 10:30, coming up to this intersection, doing the speed limit 35 mph, noticing quite a few cars coming out of parking lots, near and at the intersection ( after i figured out the 8+ cars wasn't a harm to me). I looked up at the light again, IT'S YELLOW !!! I was doing mid 20s, 1st flash. 2nd flash was between 0-1 mph, I already had my foot down too. My front tire passed the line by about a foot. There is not a cross walk at this intersection & clearly wasn't out in the middle of it.

How hard do you think this will be to contest in court ?

I thought the cameras within Houston had been disabled. Like they still flash but... nothing happens.

You won't get a ticket, sure you rolled a foot through the white, but the video will also show that you came to a complete stop.

Remember, the red light cam takes pics and video...as long as you came to a complete stop, you're golden

You don't need to fight it in court. The violation notice you will get - if you do get one - will include a link to a webpage where you can view a video of your violation. At least that was the case when I got my only one many years ago.

If you did indeed stop, the video will show it, and no violation.

You can follow the link and watch a video of you being a law breaking citizen. At least, I was able to watch me slide my caddy thru a standing yellow @ 290 and senate like a bawce and snag a $75 cool card.

Yeah.. I think they were only disabled within the city limits... so fairly certain places like Jersey Village will still get ya.

only a few small cities within houston have red light camera's left

and they will mail you a ticket w/ a link, and it'll be a movie vs still photo.

I got pulled over for a 36 in a 35 in JV. The even showed up for court. I didn't have to pay anything or any fines or none of that nonsense but I was thinking of how awesome it would be to assault that particular officer of my ball bag.

I got one right there when I lived in JV a few years ago. In my defense I had been having trouble with my master cylinder on my Truck and was actually on my way to buy parts to fix it... had the receipt and everything when I tried to fight it... still had to pay the ticket.
