You're right - the yellow light is way too short. Complete injustice.I'm overly cautious about yellow lights, yet I still got a camera ticket at the Rosecrans/Hindry intersection.This is such a cash cow for the City of Hawthorne! ;-)If I were to contact local litigation attorneys about spearheading a class action, do you have any advice?Also, I made the mistake of contacting the Court. Then, due to some misinformation, I thought I could ignore the ticket...The day after my fine and traffic school were due, they issued an invoice for an extra $479 for "failure to pay."Do you think I can somehow get out of the extra $479 late fee?Thanks!

What happened? A car hit mine on Saturday.The accident wasn't my fault.My husband and I were on our way to Home Depot at about 5:30.I was northbound on Foothills Parkway and was turning left onto Arapahoe westbound.There are five southbound lanes on foothills including the two left turn lanes.I had almost completed the turn onto Arapaho when a car in the furthest west southbound lane jumped out and hit me in the side.What color was the turn signal light when you entered the intersection?The light had just turned yellow as I entered the intersection.The accident wasn't my fault.All the traffic in the northbound lanes was stopped. Suddenly the car in that westernmost Lane jumped out and hit me.I don't think the driver of that car was paying attention.He jumped out of his car waving his arms and hollering I've got to get to my company Holiday party. He said he didn't see me. His wife also jumped out of the car very agitated.It was pretty clear at that point that no one was hurt. Maybe that's why no other cars stopped to check.The yellow arrow in that turn lane is very short.The accident wasn't my fault. I didn't enter the intersection on a red arrow.My husband, who was in the passenger seat, agrees with this completely.JA: What state was the citation in? And have you consulted a local attorney?Customer: Boulder Colorado No attorneyJA: Do you need to appear in court?Customer: Yes. "Disobeyed red light left turn"JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No

I live in Pennsylvania. I was coming down a city street and never saw that a school bus was stopped in the opposite direction with his stop sign out. This happened in the evening (it was dark out) and I never expected to see a school bus at that hour. Also, the stop sign wasn't flashing, it looked like it just had reflectors on it. As soon as I realized I passed it I stopped. I'm very upset about this. Do you think the bus driver had an opportunity to get my license plate number? I was probably about 50 feet away. I am also worried that the bus had a camera on it. A few seconds after I stopped he pulled away.
