Did You Get a Photo Enforced Ticket?

Four of the most common questions I receive from visitors are the following with regards to “I saw a flash, did I get a photo enforced ticket?” Most of these cases below DO NOT result in a violation for the following reason. To receive a red light camera violation most cameras require the vehicle to be traveling through the intersection at a minimum speed.

1) I saw a flash when making a left turn.
2) I saw a flash when making a right turn on red.
3) I was stopped in the middle of the intersection due to stopped traffic in front of me.
4) I stopped my car over the crosswalk line.

How long does it take to get a photo enforced ticket in the mail? Usually five business days it will be mailed to the registered vehicle owner if a positive match can be identified.

We would appreciate comments from anyone with additional information or experiences to share.
