I ran a red light... likeliness I will be reported/caught?Watch
I will admit I was stupid and this was a mistake.
To give you an overview of the junction. It's a T junction and where I was, the traffic lights turn green at different times for the different lanes. The left lane turns green to go straight on (which allows the oncoming traffic to turn green), leaving my light on red. When the oncoming traffic lights turn red, my lane to turn right goes to red.
But I accidentally pulled out when the traffic next to me started flowing to go straight on, which meant I cut up oncoming traffic that were just pulling off from their traffic lights. (see below for a clear image. The red arrow is the path I went. The green arrows shows the lanes which were on green).
I went back to the traffic light to check if there were any cameras, and I don't think there was. It looks to be a sensor but I'm not sure. Here's an image of it below.
So my questions are:
1) On the second image, is that a camera or just a sensor?
2) If someone had a dash cam, what is the likelihood they will show it to the police or upload it to the police? And if they do, what is the likelihood the police will follow it up?
2) Well it's the odds of someone having a dashcam AND being aggrieved enough to find the time to contact the police about it AND the police having capacity to pursue the matter IF was deemed to be especially dangerous. So probably very little.
Unless it is a handheld one or on a police car.
