Went thru a yellow light at a red light camera, in a bad area. Ticket or no?

l entered the intersection of Fairwood and Livingston on the yellow light and it was still yellow when I passed it. I would have stopped for the yellow, but there were some sketchy looking dudes loitering in front of the liquor store next to the intersection, so I was afraid and I did NOT want to be there. The intersection is apparently in one of the highest crime areas of the city and is especially known for violent crime, and those thugs on the corner looked like trouble. Will I get a ticket?

if you do, then say your ignition switch failed, and car went nuts.

pay ticket, and deduct from city & state taxes as prepaid tax.

You should be fine. Police only issue tickets on a red light or a very late yellow light, so most likely you will not get a ticket, so you shouldn't worry. Also, stay out of that area and find another route next time.
yeah baby yeah

In South Africa the vibrancy of their natives there has Whites equipping their cars with jets that shoot flames out from under the car to deter the "sketchies."

Yes, you will get a ticket. No, don't pay it. You don't have to.

Going to take another route next time to avoid the traffic on I-70. Staying far away from the hood as possible. Broad street seems a much better alternative

Did you accelerate through it? Then no because yellow means caution not stop.

I was actually inside the intersection when the light turned yellow. It was green when I got to the white line and then turned yellow when I got into the intersection. I would have stopped before the light changed to yellow because the crosswalk countdown timer was down to 1 or 2 seconds before the light changed
