Traffic Lights Offences
Stop right there: Traffic Lights Offences
You cannot cross the solid white line at a red traffic light in any circumstances. If you do you face the consequences, which if court proceedings follow can mean penalty points. If you gain 12 or more points you are likely to lose your licence.

You cannot cross the solid white line at a red traffic light. An amber light has the same prohibition as the red light namely that you must also stop at the solid white light unless your vehicle is so close to the line that it would be unsafe to stop.
Many prosecutions now rely on camera evidence to determine a traffic light penalty, which means that the prosecution has to comply with complex regulations and strict guidelines before they can succeed in obtaining a conviction. As a result there are a number of areas where challenges can be made.
With our expert legal advice, you may be able to successfully challenge the evidence. We have been successful in many cases where the prosecution believe that they have obtained clear and incontrovertible evidence.
You are likely to be offered a fixed penalty for this type offence which, if you accept, would result in 3 penalty points being added to your licence and a £60 fine.
If you do not accept the fixed penalty and the matter proceeds to Court the fine could be up to £1,000.
