$140.00 for safe right turn
 
What B.S. Linden N.J. red light cam has me making a safe right hand turn on red, alas I did not make a full stop. What B.S.

For that price, they could at least take a better quality photo.

Oh and most of the money will go to the private firm that put up the camera, not the government (although I don't really want my money going to the government either). Completely ridiculous, thankfully VA outlawed those cameras because they are unconstitutional.

I hate when people don't stop completely at a right turn on red.
Seems like just rolling through it or treating it like its a green and not even slowing down is the normal procedure here in Mass. :mad:

Oh, I wish we had those cameras!

Sorry, It's pretty clear to my eyes you didn't stop in that video.

P.S. Get an Escort 9500ix :) Absolutely love it. We don't have Red Light Camera's in MA thank goodness. I hate driving any car with out. I don't drive aggressively, I drive better with it, and make dumb mistake like the one in your video. But if the Red Light warning went off I'm sure I would come to a full stop.

In my area, the policy is they don't issue red light tickets for rolling right stops. The red light cameras are for significant violations like blowing through a red light, etc.

The OP deserves the fine for driving too slow.

It you were going fast enough they would not have been able to make out the plate number. :p

Why do you need a little machine to tell you the light is red and you need to stop. :confused:

Thats pretty asinine......whats the difference if you roll through it or blow through it? Either way your still going through a red light without stopping completely. :screwy:

Because sometimes. I'm stupid.

Sometimes I go over the speed limit too, why, because I'm stupid.

I'm in a rush, I'm lazy, I'm ignorant, I'm thinking about work or my family. What ever.

The little box smacks me in the head.

My wife didn't want one, but she got one. She loves it. She's never had a ticket in her life (but a few close calls). But she still loves it.

I bought one for my daughter too. Because she is as spacey and stupid as I am. I know she'll drive better with it.

It has a GPS in it, and learns where falses are and maps them out. You subscribe to a database with Redlight cameras that is updated regularly. I don't bother subscribing in MA.

If you are perfect, 100% of the time, you don't need one.

If it's a camera run by Redflex, the money not only doesn't go to your local government. It doesn't even go to your own country. The majority of the money goes to Australia, where Redflex is based.

Notice # 1681300245962
pin # 6245

Ok, I just watched the video and the verdict is in..........You failed to make a complete stop. You rolled through it like most people around here and I hate that.
You deserve the ticket and possibly some jail time for denying it.
So my answer to your ? is...no, I wouldn't fight it, but I wouldn't have to because I never would have rolled through it. I always come to a complete stop because thats what your suppose to do. I guess I'm just not one of those drivers that is always in a daze and in a rush and thinks their the only ones on the road. All that matters to these road menaces is getting to their destination and screw everyone else and all the traffic laws. :mad:

You've been served! :lol:
