    You may be able to confuse the red light but I can guarantee the next time rolls up behind you he won't be so confused :lol:

      more info... i'm gettin' nothing because of my filter :(

      The ultimate defeat is one of those electronic LCD covers that white out the plate at the flip of a switch. Just flip a switch when running a red light cam or the cruise lane on 400 and you'll be good to go.

        It's a mechanical plate that flips down when you move.

          You know what I do? It works every time: When the light turns red, I stop.

                After some of the crashes I've seen from people running the red light at the intersection of Scott Blvd. and Clairemont Avenue in Decatur, I'd recommend stopping for the light. I've lived here over fifteen years and among some of the accidents I've actually run too from my house, I've seen some pretty nasty stuff - including three people pinned in the back seat of a Mazda Protege screaming because the car was broadsided and squeezed down to about half it's width. I was working on a car in the garage, heard the crash, and didn't actually run down there until I heard all the screaming. The girl in the middle was screaming and the two on each side weren't moving.

                I actually saw an old 60s dodge get t-boned running the light. I was staring out (what was my office) window and BAM. The person driving stayed in one spot (no seat belt) and the car slid sideways, then they hit the oncoming impact of the interior and bounced back to the other side of the car. Definitely show the benefit of crumple zones. By the time I got there a cop was already on the scene.

                  What fun is that. When you see a red light you have to pull your e-brake and flip the car around, throw the car in Reverse. Then floor it through the intersection while you flip the camera off :biggrin:

                    That's terrible. The only times I've ever gone through red lights are when I've been battling the amber light late at night on an empty 316 or one occassion where I simply didn't see the lights because I was focusing on the next set of lights which were just ahead.

                      ****. I remember the intersection that your talking about. The few times I drove through it, I always got the feeling that, that intersection wasn't funny to have to deal with.

                        Unfortunately my neighbor across the street fell victim to this intersection. It was the weekend and he was waiting to turn left into his driveway when a girl ran the light. Three houses from the intersection she rear ended him in his just restored 70s 911 (he was out for a first run on the rebuilt engine). Put the engine in the "back seat" of the car. His car came to stop three houses down from where he was and he was out cold. Guy still has back problems to this day. They estimate her speed thru the intersection at ~50mph through the intersection based on the tire marks and impact.

                        I've lived her a long time, so I probably seen less than an average of one BAD accident per year, which really isn't that bad. Especially when you consider the traffic in this town.

                        This thread reminds me of when I lived in Miami- I used to count to "one thousand three" before entering the intersection AFTER the light turned green. And I am alive today thanks to that simple trick for traffic survival. ;)

                          I'll admit, I run the red light in front of my work almost every morning, it's a left turn and the light is only for my building, no one else. But it's a VERY pointless light when I can see 100ft up the road and NO ONE is coming and i've timed the light to take 3-5min to change on average, but no less than 2 minutes, it's retarded. Now, when there is traffic, I do stop and wait for the light. I don't condone purposefully running red lights by any means on roads that have more than 1car/min traffic.

                          But using something to avoid speed cameras and toll booths... :D oh yeah.

                            That is a bad intersection. That and the one at Glenlake Park on Church St.

                              Red light cameras don't stop people from out right running a light. A camera will not save someone from getting tboned. Red light cameras are about more revenue, not safety.

                              Having said that the device I linked to would only be effective if you were to premeditate running the light and engage the device. I don't condone that either.
