• If you get a red light camera ticket one of the things you should do right away is go back to the location of the intersection listed on the ticket and time the yellow light. Many times cities make the length of a yellow light too short which can result in more people running red lights that can't stop in time and of course increased revenue. So you want to make sure this didn't happen to you. Go back to the intersection with a stop watch and from the time the signal turns from green to yellow, begin timing until it changes from yellow to red. You'll want to do this a few times for accuracy.
