I got a ticket in Fife for making a free right on red when the left lane (traffic coming from my right) had control of the intersection, meaning that there was no danger in making the free right turn.

I could have fought this ticket three ways:

1. claim I wasn't the driver, the car was registered in the name of my company, my name was no where attached to the car.

2. claim that the law cited on the ticket does not outline the definition of the infraction nor the penalty (the RCW referenced was the law that allowed the use of red light cameras and did not cite the law about stopping at a red light). If you get a ticket, look into this, they are required by law to inform you ON THE TICKET what law you broke.

3. argue that I was in a dedicated right turn lane and under the circumstances should have had a green arrow, not requiring a stop.

I chose option #3, case dismissed

However, having said that, don't run the light, don't have a problem. ... t-cameras/


I for one am fucking tired of all the shitheads driving distracted, or just being in too god dam much of a rush that they run a light. I have had more close calls the last few months than that last 20yrs. One just the am that had I not noticed headlights approaching and decided to pause on my already green light he would have killed me. Easily 10 over the limit, never touched brakes and came thru the light full tilt. I am NOT a fan of more Govt oversight or being watched, but the program we have now on the roads is NOT working because Police on patrol are so low that you never see them, thus people just drive however they want. They have no concern about getting a ticket because the chances of getting a ticket are astronimically low when you look at time/miles on rd vs seeing a cruiser. No cop around, I will just do 45 in a 25, roll this stop sign surrounded by parked cars at 20mph, cruise thru this red light, etc... About that time a kid runs after a ball into the road, or the crossing traffic that is at legal speed and never had to slow down for a red light is right there in front of you...

As for rear end accidents, ohh well IDGAF, maybe two birds with one stone actually. The red light running is stopped and the second car learns an expensive lesson about not tailgating. Best part is nobody gets killed by being Tboned.

In totally unrelated news, coincidentally the 6 intersections have had the time between lights cut by 80%.

From green.....yellow...... red....

It's so easy NOT to get nailed by a Red light camera... Don't enter the intersection when the light is red.
I'm retired so I'm never in a hurry but even when I worked I would always leave early enough to not be late.
Too many people drive like assholes and I love watching the "FLASH" at intersections that are clearly marked
Life is too short folks, leave 5 minutes earlier and don't be a dick on the roads :thumbsup2:
