    If they went to amber just as your bonnet was passing through you have nothing at all to worry about. It won't have got you.

    Later amber to red. And they'd have to be really pushing it to set it off on amber. You really have nothing to worry about dude.

    I got done for going through a traffic light which was on amber and just changing to red by traffic cops on a 40mph road, my excuse was i was driving a fully laden truck weighing 26 tons and if i attempted to stop i would have been sitting in the middle of the junction blocking the road. There answer was its illegal to go through it on amber! Lol i checked the highway code and its exact wording is "amber means stop". 3 points and a £60 fine and a lecture from my boss about the companys image.

    Nobody gets done on amber .. they just think they do. If the camera is triggered you're nicked so to speak of, and they have 14 days fom date of offence to get an NIP to you. I'm not one to judge, but if the lights are on green you should be anticpating them changing to red and have slowed down, so the argument you use of not stopping in time won't wash with the Scamerati. Saying that I'm sure you'd have noticed if the camera was triggered, it's flash is bright enough and if you didn't see anything the chances are you're safe.

    I should have mentioned a traffic light camera will only do you if its a red light.
