I am so sorry! I am the last person you want to hear from, I am sure!! So stop reading now. Tee hee. This is just a friendly opinion--really!! :)
Yellow light means "Cautious", slow down and stop now. It does not mean speed up and try to race the light and make it through risking other people's lives. If you can see the light turn red while you are in the intersection, you could easily have stopped during the yellow light--unless it was a super short yellow.
Sorry! My mother and two year old brother were both killed in a car accident from a careless driver. I am one of those who finds no excuse for careless driving, driving while tired, driving under the influence, etc... There are FAR to many red light runners out there. I have witnessed quite a few who were just entering the intersection when my light was green and I had already started moving. If these red light cameras save even one life, they are worth it.
Only you know, in your conscience, if you truly made very possible safe attempt to stop or if you were in a hurry and were hoping to get away with it. The letter of the law and whether or not you are 'legally' in the right really doesn't matter if in your heart you know you were really racing the light.
If you have wrongly been accused, then go for it!
I am sorry again!! I am not meaning to upset anybody. :) Just my thoughts--valid or not. Only you know if you are in the right!
