Most people watch the video of the incident that shows the driver entered the intersection while the light was red. That alone convinces most people to just wave a white flag and pay for the fine. What most people do not know is that the red light camera enforcement system is subject to strict rules under that California vehicle code which could be used to get a red light camera ticket dismissed.

Some people may be confused with respect to the violation codes 21453 a vc and 21453 b vc.  Most of these folks think that the officer cited them for the wrong violation code because they made a right turn as opposed to going straight through the intersection. The confusion is simple; whether a person made a left or right turn or went straight as long as there was a red ball present then the person is in violation of 21453 a vc. Section 21453 b vc applies only in cases when a person made a right turn on red while there is a sign prohibiting right turns while the signal is red.

The following is the description of the section 21453 a vc:

21453 a vc – A driver facing a steady circular red signal alone shall stop at a marked limit line, but if none, before entering the crosswalk on the near side of the intersection or, if none, then before entering the intersection, and shall remain stopped until an indication to proceed is shown, except as provided in subdivision (b).
