Red Light Camera Flashed 2 Times While Turning Left

by: rbianyz on

Hi

I entered a left lane while it was green at warden and Ellesmere, while i was waiting for cars to pass by, the light turned red, and as I'm about to pass, the red light camera flashed two times in front of me... I dont think its my fault since I was past the white line already so? Did I wait too long?


Thank you

1) Red light cameras need a certain speed threshold to activate. eg 25km+

2) Red light camera wont active if you're already in the intersection. They will take a photo of your vehicle behind the line while also showing the red light. It will take another picture when you're in the intersection to prove you crossed the line while red.

3) Red light cameras dont flash from the front.


Either:


a) Someone in the opposite direction going straight missed the light.

b) You might have been waiting for someone who was making a right turn in the opposite lane. A lot of people think a right turn on red without stopping is exempt from red light cameras. They certainly aren't.


It doesn't sound like the ticket is yours. Hope that helps.
