Traffic camera

Hi everyone just wondering if I will have triggered a red light camera.

Basically I was at some junction lights were green so I went through, the cars in front of me stopped so I did as well still in the junction (it was not a box junction I.e. no yellow markings) I was near to the other set of lights to finish the box junction when traffic stopped moving and the lights went red.

There was a red light camera so will I have been flashed even though I went through on green originally

If you crossed the stop line when the lights were green I think you'll be OK.

Yeah I did cross when it was green bit my concern is how it decides to trigger as I was in the junction when the lights went red as I had to stop.. and if I hit a wire or however it triggers when the lights were red

This is why two photos are taken - the first would show your vehicle crossing the stop line the second is you after it.

Interestingly they also take pictures if you go before the green light shows- ie when both red and amber are showing

I'd say as long as you passed the Whitley line before it went red you're safe. Once you pass the white line you should continue to your exit otherwise you're in the way
