Can I get a ticket for this?

So I get a letter in the mail from the city of humble telling me I have a ticket and I need to show up to court. I turned right in a turn only lane while the light was red. I know its kind of hard to picture. They sent a pic of my car while I was doing it so if I can find the pic i'll post it.

I was caught by a red light cam.

Yea they considered it running a red light. So on a turn only I can't turn unless the light is green? I could see if i was turning left across traffic but I see this done on a daily basis.

right on red is legal unless otherwise posted, but only after coming to a full stop.

How does a camera tell a red light runner from a LEGAL right turn on red?

go to court if you don't have to miss work, you got nothin' to lose. My guess is you rolled it, if you don't think so the video should show otherwise. Good luck and keep us posted

I gotcha. They have the same condition on Voss Rd, going north, at Memorial Dr. There's a right turn only lane, with it's own designated light. There is not any "No Turn on Red" sign, and so everybody turns on the red light, including myself.

One day, while there was construction going on, I was the first to come up to the stop. My windows were open. There was a cop standing there on the corner for traffic control. After I stopped, I proceeded as normal to turn right. He immediately yelled at me to stop! I was like wtf? There's no sign. I told I didn't see any sign, then he pointed at the sign just under the light, that said "Right Turn Only" or something like that. It definitely did not say NO turn on red. It's very misleading, if you ask me.

For a whole week, that cop was there, and on just about every occasion, he did the same thing to every single motorist that proceeded to turn (and do so in front of him). I have not read any law regarding this issue, other than you cannot turn right if there is a sign that says "No Turn on Red".

Anyway, he gave up after about a week, and now it's back to normal with everybody turning right on red at that light.

Hire a lawyer. You should be able to fight this, if there is no specific written law that says otherwise. Like I said, the only written law that I know of is of the "No Turn on Red" sign.
