Has anyone here ever gotten a speed or rlc ticket?

 

I have in 2002, and I didn't even know they existed.

My hunch is the % on this forum is < .01

I have always wanted to find a case where someone was wrongfully ticketed, other than the obvious, where a stationary vehicle got a ticket, or 100% of people got a ticket, i.e. malfunction. Never have seen one and I've been here a long time...still curious

One of the reasons for this site is RLC location warnings

So if it works we should not be getting tickets, worked for me when we had RLC's and a few trips to Vegas

I did!

I got a RLC ticket in New York City in January 2009. I found this site a couple of weeks later...

I haven't but a guy I work with has in the work truck. I forget the fine amount as it was a few years ago, but in addition to the fine they sent two photo's one of him just crossing the stop line when the light was red and another of him most of the way through the intersection with the light still red.

Never a RLC ticket or speed

Never a RLC ticket or speed camera ticket, only tickets involving human judgement, but last ticket was in 1989, hence why not thru automated means.

3X

2 RLCs. Back in late 90's or early 2000's. Prince Georges County MD. I was guilty both times.

Got pinged by a speed camera on K St SE just 2 blocks after getting my truck out of underground parking garage in downtown DC just a couple years ago. My Garmin was still acquiring satellites in the tall building "canyons", hence it didn't warn me.

I cannot even remember when I did get a speeding ticket, long,long ago.
Plus I look at the upcoming intersection and if the pedestrian light is flashing then the yellow (Which means STOP) is not far behind and I prepare to come to a stop. Not hammer the go pedal like so many idiots do these days no matter where!

Yup

Years ago, did not come to a full STOP on a red light turn, really sucked, traffic light was in a remote section in the county, $100 bucks

Yep, about 6-7 years ago

Yep, about 6-7 years ago in Plano, Texas (a suburb of Dallas) where I live I received a RLC citation for running a red light. Accompanying the mailed citation was an image showing that my front wheels were a few feet prior to the cross-line when the traffic light had already turned red. Multiple images were available online on the city's dedicated RLC website.

I knew when it happened that I was a split-second late and would likely be cited for running the red light. I think the cost was $70, which was easily paid online, and no points were applied to my insurance.

I personally had no problem with receiving the citation. I was in a hurry and made a bad decision and the results were minimal. It was a good lesson for me to be more careful. I happen to feel that RLCs are not a bad thing, and should be treated as worthy lessons because bad decisions when driving can result in life-changing events - including injuries, death and personal devastation.

I was 16 years old

I was 16 years old when I received my only ticket.

I was driving down White Settlement Rd. in Fort Worth in the rain. I went through a yellow onto a red light. The cop stopped me. I gave him my license and he wrote the ticket. Then I began to cry and he said "If you had cried earlier I would have not given you the ticket but now it's too late".

My husband and I were dating when this happened and he paid the ticket for me and we didn't tell my parents until about 50 years later.

That was my one and only ticket I ever receive.

I have several of all kinds

Red light tickets, 80%+ guilty. Not sure of the ratio, but I did receive one where the OCR software was off and the plate on the vehicle pictured was one I never owned. When I called to complain and got ready for a fight, the person on the other end immediately realized from the image (which I didn't look at too closely) was off a by letter. It was removed from my vehicle immediately without a fight as it should have been. The other: I live on Long Island and work in the five boros of NYC. It happens, never intentionally. Nothing lately, but usually when I'm in a hurry, tired and not 100% there, or they were just installed and the light timing is short. (NO! That NEVER happens!)

Speed camera tickets. Thankfully Nassau county yanked that program and Suffolk where I live never implemented one. I got some in school zones (Queens County, NYC...), and one in Maryland at a construction zone on I95 just north of Baltimore. Not a wonderful start to a weeks vacation... None of these very recent. (2 or three years at least) I am mellowing with age. I also realize "Hey, it's work. So I'm a bit late. They don't reimburse for traffic infractions, so don't get 'em!" Only took me 35+ years of working and driving to figure that out...

"You can't get there from here"

ticket

got one in the mail about speeding in a school zone for about $300 only problem was we we did not own the car any more we traded it in for a new car 6 months prior , when we looked at the picture we found ,
1. car was wrong color.
2. car was wrong model.
3. car had wrong plates.
we called the court and gave them the information and the young lady said there was nothing she could do ! so we told her when we go to court we would mention her name when the summons to appear in court came . about a week later we got a notice about it being the wrong car some times you can get people to get off there a** and do some thing !!

.

Not even once, except one traffic violation on right turn. $600+!

Got a warning some years ago

Got a warning some years ago from the city (first offense) about doing 41 in a 35 zone. I don't recall if there was a school near by or not. This was in chicago, just north of peterson on cicero.

I tend to avoid driving in chicago proper like the plague. Nothing but revenue generation devices practically on every intersection. Not to mention the 10.25% sales tax rate. Suburbs in the same county share the tax but don't have this other nonsense to deal with.

No, but.....

No, but my sister did and she wasn't even in the car. Her husband said he was caught in the intersection making a turn when the light changed. Don't know any more than that, but I believed him. As for me, I haven't got one because I avoid them whenever possible, which is most of the time.

We'll See!

Up to now, I haven't received a citation since the advent of RLC cameras. Although I don't normally enter an intersection with a "stale" yellow light, I think this is due in part to the RLC database here at POI factory.

This may change though. I was returning from a trip to Vermont yesterday (6/28) and made a stop in Albany, NY. I was alerted to an RLC intersection which I entered just as the light went yellow. The car ahead of me stopped short to avoid a pedestrian, forcing me to stop momentarily. The light went red just as my rear bumper cleared the intersection.

It was too close to tell for sure if I was clear or not so I'll just have to wait and see.

Thanks

Thankfully, No.

Never had a ticket, and when I travel in new areas I really appreciate having the POI Factory's RLC file in my Garmin.

Yes

Some cities are really _____ about enforcement. In one city in Washington they will cite you for crossing the white line. Technically you have to stop behind the white line before proceeding (Right turn) and many don't.

Here in Albuquerque the majority of drivers show no indication that they understand the stop line to mean anything at all. Not only do they ignore it on right turns, but they ignore it when stopping for a red light, even when it gives them no advantage whatever to stop well beyond it.

Another more intentional custom is pre-launching. People start forward guessing that the light is about to turn, gaining several milliseconds when they guess right, and pulling down in speed or stopping when they get deeper into the intersection than their personal comfort level. The rare worst cases make it well over a full car length into the intersection proper (more than that past the stop line).

I've never detected any enforcement here on these matters at all. Maybe if we had some people would adjust to safer behavior.

Where someone for whatever reason is 1+ car lengths behind the stop line, in a turn lane, and then the turn arrow never happens. If I am behind I will tap my horn, and usually nothing happens, and we miss another cycle of the light. Then I will lean on the horn, and now there is at least a 50% chance the person will move up...

When I was a kid, I remember playing outfield, and actually being afraid that a ball would be hit to me, and I would drop it. That's the only analogy I can think of, for when people find yellow lights to be confusing, as to what to do. If the speed limit is 55 mph, like on route 1 in NJ, you don't simply slam on the brakes if you see the light turn yellow, you are going to have 5+ sec of yellow. If you are going the speed limit, things will happen smoothly. If you are speeding, or going too slowly, now you are having to make a more complicated decision. Which a licensed drive should be able to correctly make...imho.

Expectations....

You have set your expectations too high smile

Out here some folks come to complete stops at highway merge lanes such as this: https://goo.gl/maps/4cAaAgyAo4v

Then they look for an opening before gunning the car.

haha

I suppose I am looking at things literally, and you, practically.

Again, maybe my outfield analogy is reality. People hope the light doesn't change as they approach, because they are afraid of what will happen next (have to decide to proceed, or come to a stop). Whereas if a solid red, or a solid green, the decision is obvious.
