No one enjoys getting a traffic ticket. Fines are expensive, and if you get too many points on your license your driving privileges could be taken away from you. Besides, a moving violation such as a speeding ticket, failing to yield, a drinking and driving charge, reckless driving or following too closely can make your car insurance rates go up.
While you may not enjoy getting speeding tickets or a red light violation citation, at least you can understand why the police officer stopped you: you were going too fast, or you drove through a red light. Some traffic violations are not as easy to understand.
For example, passing a stopped school bus with its red lights flashing that is picking up children will probably lead to a police officer citing you for what is clearly a school bus violation. But what about the traffic ticket you receive in the mail because a camera caught you going through a red light at an intersection that you clearly recall entering just as the light turned yellow? Could you have been the victim of officials reducing the time allowed under a yellow light in order to increase the number of violations, as we discussed in a recent posting?
