Do traffic cameras do this?

Do traffic cameras take pictures of drivers cutting lanes at intersection?

Or do they just take pictures of drivers running red lights?

    The way the cameras works is this way " once the light has turned " yellow" it triggers a sensor on the pedestrian line, so it detects when cars passed after the yellow light was on, and that's how it takes the picture because it calculates you wont make it to the other line on time, it doesn't have to do anything with cutting anything or going anywhere, its only straight line. so you don't have to worry about that. :) hope this helped.

    The only way to trigger the red light camera is to enter the intersection after the light has turned red. So long as you cross that thick white line that's located before the crosswalk before the light turns red you won't get a ticket. The other way the red light camera can get you is if you don't come to a complete stop when making a right turn. Those cameras are designed solely to generate ticket revenue from people who run red lights, they could care less about whether or not you changed lanes in the intersection.

    nope…unless the intersection lane change is if both pastries are running a red light. =o)

    Cameras generate money for the people who operate the systems, they could care less whether or not you are safe.
