    Answered . Traffic cameras are equipped to catch drivers running red lights. I doubt they're much use for anything else. My advice to you is to not discuss this incident with anyone, and that includes here or any other Internet forum or message board. If you get a summons, see an attorney.

    Answered . In the unlikely event you were charged with reckless driving you would most likely get a suspension and/or surcharge from the MVC.

    But like counsel state above - highly unlikely that the State can make their case. Good luck.
