Yeah here in California, if there is no officer there to issue the ticket, then it is invalid.

So basically what everyone needs to do is install a rocket launcher on the side of their vehicle, and shoot every traffic camera down that they come into contact with! It may even improve the cars aerodynamics too!

That's crazy! Especially considering that there is normally a 1-2 second safety gap between the time a light turns red and when the next one turns green. It only makes sense for this to be considered running a red light if its been red for an entire second.

I'm interested to hear how long after the light turned red he went through it and to look for the video online. Now I'll be paranoid every time I go through a yellow light!
