Red Light Cameras and failing to turn right

By Solidarity 27 October 2010 24

Hi all,

I tried a search, but no luck.

I got flashed by a red light camera yesterday.

Lights are green to go forward, but red to turn right.

I was in the right hand turning lane, changed my mind, turned on my indicator, and went straight ahead.

Several flashes.

So is going straight from a right hand turn lane an offense or not? If it is, i’ll just… pay the fine I guess, but i’d like to know if I need to stash a way a few pennies or not.

Thanks

if you get a fine, request the photo, and go to court. It will show your wheels heading down the street. No use getting worked up over it.

Solidarity, you do realise that if you had left when the light indicated to do so the lady in the car behind you might also have been able to leave.

By not moving you caused her to have to put up with the agro pedestrian for longer than necessary.

Well done.

Ah yes, geographical awareness… some of us have it, some don’t. Either that or some people don’t bother to read and absorb the presented material.

Different lanes, there was nobody behind me, nor anybody in front of her, hence her proceeding to go straight, and me going straight from a turning lane.

This happened to me some years ago. Sitting at Hindmarsh/ Yamba waiting for green arrow so I could turn right to TCH, I saw the main traffic light go green and instinctively started to pull out, realising after about 2 metres that it was still a red arrow I hit the anchors and reversed back to where I was but got pinged.
Had to pay $200+ and was at work too which sucked
