    A couple of weeks.

    Consider using a gps traffic detection poi to warn you of traffic cameras. The following site contains a link to directions for installing a free poi on most gps systems: http://www.a2dvoices.com/realitycheck/

    Red-light tickets fines often vary between $60 and $400 dollars. Remember that the municipalities do not want to clog their courts, they just want your money. If you do not pay by mail and instead choose to fight the ticket in court, many times you will get a message saying that the prosecutor has decided not to prosecute.

    One tactic is to contest receiving a non-moving violation for a moving violation (running a red light). It is also important to note the blowing through a red light is just as expensive as making a rolling stop when turning. The fines are just revenue generators. Out of principle, many people boycott doing their business with merchants in these municipalities.

    The Minnesota State Supreme Court struck down the red light cameras in Minneapolis because they were basically ticketing the owner of the vehicle, not the driver.

    If you do get a ticket, fight it. Unless they have a clear picture of you driving the car, they have no proof it was actually you. For all they know, you could have lent your car to someone else, and they ran the red light.

    Doesn't sound to me like you should get a ticket. If one is issued it would be done very quickly. Should be received in only a few days. Most of these camera tickets are issued by companies under contract to the Govt. They typically get like 50% of the fine as their payment and are therefore quite efficient about issuing the tickets.

    I work at a local municipality. We print our tickets weekly and mail them out the following Monday.
