Smile, You’re on a Traffic Camera

The problem with camera enforcement is that they will tag the owner and not some one who barrows your car. Additionally, many lights on sensors do NOT detect motorcycles which have little choice but to run the light or wait for who know how long for a car to pull up behind them. Also these are privately contracted out by the town, village, or city.

BTW, going through a red light under these circumstances is legal and if it is a light that is familiar to be a problem to you because you are on you motorcycle you do not have to wait for a full cycle of the lights.

So this could wrongly target motorcycles and mopeds. Also if they do not write pedestrians for crossing against the light or bicyclists for running the light then they are showing clear prejudice and selective enforcement.

I would fight it.
