I ran a red light and got a ticket from a state cop. It was a fast road - bunch of cars - if I stopped quick as needed it could have been a rear-end situation. The yellow clearance interval was way too short - I researched it tremendously before I went to court - took video of scores of people running the red on a lazy Sunday afternoon - and walked into court with reams of research.
I won, ticket got thrown out and they wanted my research - I gave it to them - I asked them to have someone change the light, even went to the town where the light was and told them- nothing happened ....years later that light is still timed dangerously short. 50 mph road and under 3 second yellow.
But no red light camera——yet
And it probably still produces government revenue from tickets, since few people will go to the lengths you did to prove your case.
