Thanks, i'm going to try to find the vid.

Question: Am I the only one who does this here? Does everyone make a complete stop or did I just get caught?

thats how red light camera's work psychology wise. we all do illegal stuff, but once you get caught you change your habits. hopefully.

thats why tickets have declined at spots where there are camera's at. but the naysayers say it doesn't work.

your living proof.

I guess I missed it. I thought she did stop at the designated stopping point, then proceeded to turn right.

in retrospect, i bet she believes she did. the vid. might say otherwise.

we have all become so accustomed to running thru the turns, doesn't mean we're legal. myself included.

Well, considering that I live down that street and I drive it at least twice a day... I almost never see anyone come to a complete stop at that light. That's why they put the camera there. And since they've installed it... I see it flash for every car that pulls up to that light and crosses the white line, there is a meter type device on a pole right next to the white line aimed down at it, so I assume that's how they know that you've crossed the line... about that time you should be saying, "CHEESE!"

I specifically don't make a right there because there is always some cop giving tickets on that road. It is a 35 mph speed trap road (there are no houses directly off of that road, there are hardly any businesses on it either (maybe 2 or 3 on a three-mile stretch???) I'd rather go up to 59 and take a right... but that's just me.

The Humble Judge is not big on forgiving tickets, if you go without a lawyer... My lawyer and I hang out with him at least once a year since I moved into Humble. I think he even recognizes me now...

Anyway, sorry you got caught... wouldn't hurt you to get a lawyer and try to fight it, even if you did run it. That's how we'll all know whether they can make it stick.

Good Luck!

We were told by a police officer just last week that they can get you for running a red light if your car is not stopped behind the solid white line, so if you inch over it the camera goes off and boom you ran a red light.

They pictures are about 2 seconds apart, you can see that the cars coming to a stop on the opposite side of the road are virtually unchanged but you are already long gone from the intersection. Seeing that coupled with the fact that they speed says 13mph, I am willing to bet that you ran right through the light. Don't waste your time, just send in the check. It isn't worth missing work over (lost hours + fine).

On to another issue with the redlights. I wonder what happens when you proceed with caution to allow an emergency vehicle through. Would it end up being catch 22?

Hmm... I've been to defensive driving twice and I was told by them and an officer that your wheels have to make a complete stop. There was no seconds added to this rule.

I don't see a sign saying no right turn on red. :dontknow: Go to court!
