License plate photos for running red lights accurate?

I was driving from the Dumbarton Bridge and turning on Willow Road while the light was yellow and a flash went off on Willow Road. I am assuming it was taking a photo of my license plate. However, I did not run a red light. I did not want to skid to a stop so I ran the yellow. Should I expect a ticket in the mail? And is it worth fighting or is it illegal to run a yellow?
Does the light flash at every red or does it flash when someone has passed the line after the light is yellow? How accurate is that camera?
