Red Light Traffic Ticket?

I made a Left hand turn (Islington, and HWY 7) on a steady left arrow I was the first in the left lane and as I made my left turn I saw the Red light camera flash I didn't do anything illegal, I don't understood why the camera flashed. Is it possible I got a ticket? or maybe it was someone else? It's kind of worrying me.

Think of the Childre…
Maybe someone made a RIGHT turn and didn't fully stop. Stop worrying if you didn't do anything wrong.

When you were turning was the light red? It probably caught another car as the above mentioned, wouldn't be too worried.

A flash doesn't necessarily mean a ticket. My guess is that someone ran the red when you were turning left and you simply didn't notice as you were focused on making the turn.

Yeah I always wondered if the other intersection running perpendicular is able to get tickets since the red light ticket box is only on one lane usually

You sound kinda like my wife.

THERE IS NOTHING YOU CAN DO ABOUT THINGS THAT HAVE ALREADY HAPPENED! SITTING THERE AND WORRYING DON'T DO YOU ANY BETTER

If you didn't do anything wrong, nothing will come.
If you get something in the mail in 1-2 months, THEN see what happened. You can figure out why, and possible fight.

You are just sitting there, worry about everything - everything that you can NOT do anything about.
