red light camera ticket

i just got a red light ticket in the mail today showing that i made a left turned on a red light. Is there a way to dispute it? I was driving down hastings and there was a car tailing gating me. I was about 1 car length before the intersection before it turned yellow and the camera caught me right at the intersection when it just turned into red. Also, there was a car speeding down the the center lane which it ran the red. is it possible to dispute it or i just have to pay it? In both of the pictures the on coming car which ran the red was not visible.

if the picture has you before the stop line and the light red then there is nothing you can do. that means you entered on the red and would have more then enough time to stop.

Those tickets are pretty much air tight. Pay it and be done with it. I believe since they cannot prove who was the driver at the time it does not carry points.

Then the car behind you would be at fault for not leaving enough stopping distance. Running the red would caused YOU to be at fault for an accident.

This would NOT be a viable defense as it does not pertain to things that you can control.
