That's an easy 'fix-it' ticket. If you get a ticket at a red light camera, go to the intersection multiple times with a video recorder. Record the green to yellow to red light transitions. Next go to another nearby and similar intersection with no red light camera and record that one multiple times. Go home and time all of them. Make sure that each time you record, the times are consistent....then check with the laws of the city and/or the state to see if the interval times match the prescribed times.
If there's a discrepancy in timing for the one the intersection with the red light camera vs. the one without, you may have a ticket that could be thrown out in court.
Most people are lazy, so they won't go through the lengths to prove this and would just rather pay the $100.
