A red light camera is never on the traffic light itself because it couldn't capture what colour the light is if the camera itself is mounted on the traffic light. Hence no evidence!

It is always on a seperate post, behind the stop line - to capture the offending car and the traffic light at the time of the offence.

Yep you're going to get fined and lose your licence. New rules say you'll never be able to drive again and can be jailed for up to five years.

No, it's absolutely not. Shouldn't have gone through the light if you didn't want the ban!

Is this a traffic light camera? Does it flash?
I went in the amber color. So it might catch a bit of the back of car. Will I get a fine?

Yeah. I am kind of paranoic now. Just because of the flash. It is a second decision that it is impossible to make. Stop sudently on the traffic light with car behind or go through the amber light.

Well technically you should slow down even if the light is green; you learn that during lessons. Additionally, I don’t think (don’t bank on this) that traffic cameras flash. I once thought a speed camera flashed behind me but it turned out to be the car behind me (plus my colleagues said I’d know for sure if it had flashed because they’re so bright), so I wouldn’t worry about it

Infrared cameras do not flash visibly. Enjoy your ban.

I was going on 20 mph. But I only saw the âmbar light really close. Maybe it would be possible to stop. I couldnt react that fast and I my first instinct was not to do a sudently stop. Maybe I was stupid xD let's find out.

You can go through amber anyway. Risky ambers are the best.

It's called trolling. Should be banned though.

Get off the roads if you can't see a red light.

Incorrect, research Truvelo cameras.
