Darkviking: I was following a line of cars through an intersection when some jackoff at the head of the line decides he wants to make an illegal left, thus holding up everyone.  Of course I was at the tail end of the line when the light went red, and apparently was in the zone to get flashed.

Sure enough, I am holding a $75 ticket.


Holy fark you're lucky. A red light ticket in California is about $490.

Do they still mail them out to random car renters from out of state?

On weekend nights I work in a bar. At the end of my shift, I go through a particular intersection that has cameras. Since I make a left at that intersection onto what is basically a driveway into a parking lot, and straight through is a six lane highway,  9 times out of 10 I find myself stopped and waiting in the left turn lane at 3-4 am. And usually the only vehicle in sight. On most of these occasions, I will see the flash from the cameras go off 2-3 times before the light changes. From this, I'm not at all convinced that they are triggered solely by sensors keyed to actually running the light. They seem to also be triggered randomly simply by time passed since the last instance. The only time in the past year that I have seen them flash with a car in the intersection, it was a police cruiser that triggered it.
