How could they EVER determine who was driving? It is a fine- to the registered owner of the vehicle, just like parking.

The common sense monster should have come in this thread instantly to smush that idea!
Love your condescending post - thanks -

But my insurance covers all drivers of my car, not just me as a driver - so it would make a lot of sense that my insurance would go up if the driver of my car is driving recklessly.

Why not just stop for red lights and not worry about the camera?

Question, has anyone ever gotten a camera ticket...or know if there is a red light cam. On the intersection of Brandon Town Center and Highway 60? The road coming out of Brandon Town Center Mall

I was coming out of the mall, and the light was yellow, I was making a left and going kind of fast. Since there was a car tight on my ass I didn't want to brake suddenly and risk an accident. When I passed the line, the light was yellow. Then as I was slowing down I see a camera flash (same color at least) hit the cars to the left of me.

Yeah I am worried because I am driving with a learner's permit, and am worried that a ticket like this can stop me from getting my license.

If the car behind you was right on your tailpipe its doubtful your tag could be seen.

to reiterate... even if you did get a ticket, it doesn't affect your license. it is only a fine.

No matter how tight cars are, it will always get your plate. usually people race through yellows and reds right on eachothers asses. the local government took this into account when spending millions and millions of dollars on these systems.

You can drive through the intersection on yellow. i believe if ANY part of yoru car is crossing the white line upon change to red, you get nailed.

either way it is just a fine. dont sweat it. who was in the car with you when it happened? what did they say? they should be teaching you how to drive and offer advice/input in this situation.
