Inquiry:  My partner and I were driving (we live in Brampton, Ontario) and the light was yellow and we were proceeding at 60km, the local limit when the camera snapped us. There wasn’t any time to stop at the light so we proceeded. The light was red for 0.5 seconds and we crossed at 1.4 seconds, according to the document. Are there any demerit point reductions? Does this stay on the record and affect our insurance? The ticket was for about $325.

Response:  Red Light Camera charges do not register as a conviction on the driving history or carry demerit points.  While you could contest the charge at Court, it would likely cost more in defending the charge than there would be in any potential benefit.
