Redlight/Speed Camera Question

I was at an intersection near my house this morning which I know has a redlight/speed camera. I was stopped at the redlight for about 45 sec and was the only vehicle there. When it turned green, I proceeded across the intersection and noticed the camera behind me flashed twice. My speed was only about 15-20 km/hr. WTF is that, am I going to receive a ticket in the mail that I will have to fight or does someone actually look all these photos before they send them out? Never received a redlight camera ticket before.

We'll just have to wait and see, could be a malfunction. Anywho, if what you said is true, whoever reviews the picture would know and void the ticket.

A physical body needs to check before sending out an actual ticket, so hopefully he will see the green light when you entered the intersection.

Ok thanks, I wasn't sure if anyone actually reviews these photos before sending anything out. Can you actually report a malfunctioning camera to the police dept. even though they have nothing to do with them.

You don't call the police for this, you call city services.
