    If you honestly went through on amber (tell the truth now), then the likelihood is that tha camera is not loaded. What they do is set the threshold really low just to worry people. An active camera has a bit of leeway and shouldn't go off on amber.
    I had this happen to me and called the traffic division who said the camera wasn't active. Most TF camera's are older analogue models and require loading with film etc so when they run out they leave them. Good luck.
