I know I was not speeding, but when I passed the speed van the strobe flashed, why?
When the operator first arrives at the deployment location they must take test photos to ensure that the camera is properly focused on the passing vehicles. These photos are taken manually by the operator, not triggered by vehicle speed, before the system begins to record violations. All violations are reviewed by American Traffic Solutions and officers at the Millington Police Department before they are approved as a valid violation and the notice mailed to the violator. It is possible that the operator has taken one of these test photos as you passed the vehicle, this will not be recorded as a violation and you will not receive a Notice of Violation in the mail.
Why does the red light camera strobe flash when no one was running the red light?
The red light camera's are triggered by sensors in the roadway. These sensors are not only at the stop bar at the intersection but locations leading up to the intersection. As vehicles approach a red light the speed of the vehicle is calculated and the strobe may flash in anticipation of a violation event based on the approaching vehicles speed. The vehicle can stop at the red light, however because of the system believes that an event is likely occur photo's are taken. This event will be reviewed by both ATS and the Millington Police Department and if no violation is present it will be disregarded and no notice of violation will be issued.
