We posted back in May about the use of red light cameras on Long Island. Last week Newsday published an article that highlighted a few Long Island motorists’ recent experiences with red light cameras.
One reader, Elene Contegiacomo of New Hyde Park, successfully beat a red light ticket in court with the help of her husband. Any traffic lawyer could learn a thing or two from this couple, who established through photographs that their vehicle did not make a right on red at the intersection of Lakeville Road and Union Turnpike.
The Contegiacomos obtained a copy of the actual video of their alleged violation, where they discovered that another vehicle of a similar make and color had actually made a right on red without first coming to a complete stop.
