California: Red Light Camera Class Action Lawsuit Hits Federal Court | The Truth About Cars
Even in California, this has no chance.
Red Light Ticket intersections have quicker "yellow to red" light changes.
I always wondered what happens when you make a left on red?
You wait in the intersection with your left turn signal on waiting for a break in traffic. Traffic keeps coming while the light is green and you don't get a break until the light turns red.
Will you get an automatic ticket?
Legally, I'm pretty sure you're not supposed to be waiting in the intersection.
The Cameras in NYC usually show two shots, one right before the light changes, and one after. To get a ticket you have to be seen NOT in the intersection prior to the red, and then IN the intersection during a red. Thus people in the intersection prior to the switch are identified, and not sent a ticket.
Springfield, MO dismantled their red light cameras:

JEFFERSON CITY — Missouri's third-largest city suspended the use of red-light traffic cameras Tuesday after the state Supreme Court struck down its process for handling the tickets.
In a unanimous decision Tuesday, the high court said that violations of municipal ordinances, such as running a red light, cannot be handled through administrative hearings but instead must be heard in a court.
You should go to AZ where they have cameras all over the place including portable speeding cameras. Driving to Phoenix last summer I counted more than 10 between the border and the city.
I thought they ended up taking those down because of the public outcry.
Red light camera tickets aren't enforcable. I got a red light ticket in Maryland in the summer when I stopped to eat on my way driving to Boston. I got a speeding ticket by a camera in Cleveland last year. I have never paid either one and they even say in the letter they send you that you don't accumulate points on your license. The worst they can try and do is send it to a collection's agency.
