I've never had to pay a ticket for them, though... I'm pretty good at getting out of paying for tickets, usually because I push back court dates for so long the cop just doesn't show up.
Here (near the city) they won't even try that nonsense. Yellow means 'proceed with caution". "Caution" is a subjective term.

Unless they can prove you sped up (radar?) that charge won't stick in court.
