Hi everyone, I am wondering if anyone could give me advice on my worries that I might be getting a red light camera fine.
I was driving across the intersection of Northbourne Avenue and Barry Drive. When the traffic light turned amber, I was too close to the intersection and was unable to pull up safely in time. So, I accelerated to cross the intersection. I saw the red light camera flashed, just before I got to the other end.
It could be two reasons:
- The traffic light turned red before I crossed the intersection; or
- My speed was over limit
It was an uneasy judgment when the traffic light changed so soon. I tried to avoid a panic stop which may cause the car behind running into my back. I wasn’t sure whether I’ve go over the speed limit cause it was heavily raining and I was a bit panic.
I am worried that I may be getting a ticket next week.
Does anyone know how much does the fine usually cost for running a red light camera? Will it cause any demerit points?
Thanks very much.
