    Just got a fixed penalty notice for a Traffic light Camera, £60 fine and 3 points. I know when I went through the lights were just changing, is it worth disputing?

    Sorry typo, my number lock came on, meant to read I went through, on a green change to Amber

    Oh balls looks like ya ******ed. You could try and dispute with them. But at the end of the day it's you against the government!
    If you went through amber even, then you don't have a leg to stand on. Whoops!

    Did they send a pic ? if not maybe ask for 1 and see, I think it should show your car and the red light.
    BTW amber means stop ;-)

    Fair enough.......thats 6 points on the licence now, best be a good boy for a few years. Traffic lights pee me of with a passion. Why they leave them on at 3am in the morning still changing as you approach them I will never know

    Yeah I know Amber means stop, I'm a lorry driver , but green dont mean stop and if it changes when you are 2 yards from the line doing 20mph to Amber you would end up in the middle of the carriageway by the time you had stopped :roll:

    Only show me photographic if I dispute and take it to court

    where was yall goin at 3am sugar puff ? lol

    Yeah they didn't have ABS back then on them though did they. I just think they should give truck divers a bit more discretion. Chuffing do 120,000 miles a year compared to the average 12,000, we are gonna make the odd driving error every once in a while, statistics say we will :roll:

    Sorry mate always been the case, Amber means stop direct.gov.uk/en/…Web

    If you dont trust the PDF file here's the direct link direct.gov.uk/en/…htm

    Amazingly as a lorry driver you see so many myth beliefs on how people misunderstand the highway code. Dont get me started on the right of way when turning into a juction and a pedestrian crossing in front of you. The amount of drivers that are angry at me cos i let the pedestrian cross whilst I stop the traffic with my lorry :giggle:

    Hey just a thought, if you are in an artic, maybe you went over as the lights change in the unit, then the trailer sets off the cam :thinking: ( stupid trailer, follows me everywere :whistling:) may be worth a look at the pic ;-)

    It's the 4 sign along amber on it's own means stop if safe to do so.

    "AMBER means ‘Stop’ at the stop line. You may go on only if the AMBER appears after you have crossed the stop line or are so close to it that to pull up might cause an accident"

    I had a light turn amber-red just as I pulled past it was like AHHHHH it had a camera on it too, no letter yet.

    there was that case in Spain i think where the local government had fixed all the lights to catch drivers out on purpose

    I have heard that an excuse that there was an insect in the car (wasp, etc) which distracted your attention or sneezing as you will close your eyes for a split second then. Probably an urban myth but what have you got to lose!

    Nah cos its based on an object entering the camera signal. I think I probably went through it on Amber, which means stop.

    I went through an amber the other day as i didnt have time to stop at all as it was changing to red so i think fine, fine wise

    Yeah, I have a propensity to ignore traffic lights. I already have a traffic light offense on my licence from 3 years ago :roll:

    Just when you pass them at 3 in the morning and not a single car or pedestrian is within a mile of you, you think, 'really what is the point'. I maintain they keep going on about saving electricity and environmental issues. If they painted giveway lines on the traffic lights and turned the lights off between midnight and 6am, it would make life so much easier for delivery drivers. And the environment.

    Thanks for that, i'll take a look

    Jeez read that link, thought my eyes would fall out, talk bout long winded, foos if you do ask for info or try and contest it, please use recorded delivery and keep photocopies of everything, track the mail etc,

    I think there are something called the PACE regulations, which say whenever the police prosecute or issue fines then you are entitled to an interview as with all crimes......I'm sure someone told me that once when we were discussing the police targeting drivers.

    I could be wrong but think this is prior to prosecution etc, etc
