Referring to this article: http://trafficlaw.com.au/red.lights.html
I have a question about the section mentioning how a photo should look:
When the system is working properly, the first photo will always show the rear of the offending vehicle about 1m past the inductive loop, and will always show the traffic lights are red.
I received a red light fine that has refers to a photo that I believe misrepresents my case. Whilst I am aware that the camera should not take a photo if a vehicle is partially over the stop line before the light changes to red, I can't see any other fitting explanation. I'm trying to find evidence to explain the difference between my recollection and the information I am seeing.
What I do know is:
1. That my photo has been taken 1.9s after the light went red and that I had been at a standstill at a green traffic arrow because a car three vehicles ahead of me stopped mid intersection, for at least 5 seconds, with no visible obstruction blocking it.
2. That the first photo has my rear tire just beginning to touch the stop line.
I've seen many articles saying that the traffic lights cannot take a photo if a vehicle is partially over the inductive loop, but both my wife (the passenger) and I are sure of our recollections. Is there any way to spot an error? Does the fact that there isn't anywhere near 1m between the stop line and my rear wheel mean something?
Thanks in advance for any responses.
