VIDEO: Red light camera ticket thrown out after man proves yellow light was too short

Video from NBC-2

A woman was caught on camera running a red in Collier County. But after her husband fought the ticket, it was thrown out. Now officials say there may be other drivers who were wrongly ticketed as well.

About 28,000 drivers have been caught on camera running a red light in less than a year. The excuses range from bad weather to not wanting to be rear-ended.

But Collier driver Mike Mogil claims the yellow lights are simply too short. And as it turns out, he's right. Armed with a stopwatch, Mogil may be driving a hole in the credibility of Collier County's red light camera system.
