OK so you all know that I got a speeding ticket for 45 in a 40 recently, well not long after that I got flashed by a red light camera...again(first time was for 50 in a 40 after leaving the pool hall, i took my lumps for that one) and again this happened while I was delivering pizzas. I was in the turning lane to take a right in an intersection and the arrow turns yellow so I keep on truckin thru, well it turns red as im turning right and the camera flashes me. My ticket came in today, a whopping $125. **** my life

$110 for the speeding ticket and $125 for the red light camera, delivering pizzas is starting to cost me more money than I make rofl

I would go to court over that last one and at the very least, get it knocked down to a smaller fine...

As for those red light cameras, MN no longer can use them...so happy about that...it was deemed illegal for them to use the camera's because there was no way to tell that the owner of the vehicle was for sure the one driving. So to send the owner of the car a ticket for someone else's poor choices while driving is illegal in MN.

The covers and sprays do not work. Their have been multiple tests of these all concluding negative results. Anything that shows it working is most likely faked. In the end its all a scam. If you were in the middle of the intersection then it should not have triggered. The cameras are suppose to be wired so that if the sensor is tripped once the light turns red it will snap a pic. Otherwise if it was already blocked before going to red it will not. You could always fight the ticket and they may check the intersection to make sure the sensors are working properly.

it varies too much. Some are required, some not, some allow them in windows and some don't. Too damn confusing.
