Was your ticket for running a red light or something to do with the crosswalk? Was there anyone in the crosswalk when you went through the intersection? Were you turning right?

I'm looking at Google Street view for this area. Are you talking about the spot, in front of a business, where there's a red light, a crosswalk, and a big section that says "KEEP CLEAR"?
