Most of you might have noticed those annoying cameras popping up at intersections
throughout the country. What you should know about the cameras is that
they are primarily designed to catch motorists that don't come to
a complete stop when making a right turn. For the most part, if you entered
the intersection and the light has turned red the camera will not be activated
to record you running the red light. It's primary use is to take a
motion picture of a motorist making a right turn on ted without fully
violations are prosecuted under a city oridinance and because of that very little
due process is allowed.
Identity of the driver is not necessary to prove in order to obtain a conviction.
So, even if your BFF is driving your car and taking that crucial right
turn on red light without first coming to a complete stop the owner of
the vehicle will be responsible for the ticket. Since this is only an
ordinance violation, owners failure to pay will not result in a jailable
offense, but will most likely lead to a negative mark on one's credit.
To make matters worse, many ordinances, will provide that if the red light
violation is challenged and the determination is made against the person
challenging it, the fine becomes more severe.
SO STOP AT THE RED LIGHT WHEN MAKING A RIGHT TURN AND PLEASE PROCEED WHEN
INTO THE INTERSECTION TO COMPLETE YOUR TURN WHEN THE ROAD IS CLEAR.
