    You know if you blast through the intersection fast enough the camera can't catch you.

    If you run a red light in reverse it can't get your plate number .

    Top Gear did that some years ago.
    I think Stig had to get 150mph where the camera could not read the plate.

    The ticket will eventually make it to your center and they will give it to you pay. It is then up to you to pay it or contest it.

    I had a red light camera catch me several times at intersections years ago when I was running EAMs. I kept expecting a ticket but I never saw one. I wouldn't volunteer some certain things if you aren't sure, especially if you are qualifying. I wouldn't lie about anything either if asked.

    Same thing happened to me making a left at an intersection with a camera. The light turned red way too fast and I knew that would be a ticket if I was in my personal car but I was in a UPS truck so I wasn't sure if anything would happen. Sure enough about a month later the center manager calls me over after the PCM with a few sheets of paper in his hand that he shows to me and asks who that is in the pictures running a red light. I said ummmm I think thats me ya that's me. He then lectured me like a father yelling at his son saying I'm either going to kill someone or myself if I keep driving like that. He then threw the paperwork at me and said I'm not paying this ticket and walked away. I picked the papers up and saw that the fine was $450 and threw it in the trash. The amazing thing is that I never heard of it again and I still wonder what happened.

    Sounds like he assaulted you by throwing the papers at you.

    This is why I am always friendly and wave at the traffic cameras on my route. I figure they will let me slide like the policeman in my area...
