I finally did it and got my first red light camera ticket. I failed to stop at the red light as I was making a right turn. The late time was only 0.1 seconds. It turned from right turn yellow arrow to full red just before reached the intersection - and I thought it was safer to continue the right turn. No I didn't stop. Right turn on red is permissible there and there isn't red-right turn arrow. The photos/videos are pretty clear too. But really, for 0.1 seconds? for a right turn (when it just has been right green/yellow arrow)? Yeah, I should have slowed down and prepare to stop when the yellow right arrow appeared but I thought I would make it (it's a reasonably long yellow right arrow).
Has anybody been in a similar situation and fought? Has anybody managed to have such a ticket dismissed?
I would really appreciate any advice on the matter, how can this be fought. I think the fee is way high compared to the East Coast. I'd be ok paying a fee, but I think this is a ripoff.
