Traffic Camera flashed at..me?

After I dropped something off at work I took the long way home. On my side of the road it's 4 lanes – 2 left turns, center and right. I was in the right lane and from what I know and remember, I had the green light. The lanes designated for left turns was going as well and I saw the traffic cameras flash on

After I dropped something off at work I took the long way home. On my side of the road it's 4 lanes – 2 left turns, center and right. I was in the right lane and from what I know and remember, I had the green light. The lanes designated for left turns was going as well and I saw the traffic cameras flash on my left; seconds before I entered the intersection. As I passed through another flash came up.

I'm pretty damn sure I had green going through. The left lane was going as well, so there would be no way any of the cross traffic has their way given. I wasn't speeding or doing anything that would endanger other drivers

How much do those traffic camera tickets cost in California nowadays? And how can I go about contesting this in the event I get that dreaded piece of paper in the mail?

The left lanes have green arrows, and often does not coincide with the center or right lane signals. The camera is activated when the light is red in your lane, and a car passes a spot in the road that triggers the camera. You are lucky that nobody in the lane coming toward you had a green arrow on their side!

If they send you a picture of you going through the intersection, the camera doesn't lie. The electronics are foolproof. They have double-checks built in.

Now, of course, you could be funny and send them a picture of several $20 bills instead of real money. They might also be funny and send you a picture of a set of handcuffs.

Pay the fine.

Don't worry, the photo should clearly show the traffic signal. These tickets are very difficult to contest because the evidence is right there in the photos.

You cannot really argue which photos of you running a light, that is why the systems take several photos from different angles..
