you just coughed the offence.......:thumbsup:

Amber still an offence, unless you can show that it would have been dangerous to stop...

depends if your front wheels go over the line 0.9 seconds after they turn red

What does it matter?

If she's been caught, she'll hear about it soon enough.

Shes going to be spending some time behind bars

i think she'll be ok, but if she was to get a fine , it will be within the next couple of days, they are very quick

if she would have been in a position just behind the jag, then more than just her front wheels went over the white line!

the camera points down at about a 40 degree angle so she would have been photographed if JUST behind where the jag was.

If she was further back and just her front wheels were over, then she is fine cos it would be impossible for the camera to see her rear number plate.

If the camera is focused on that junction, it does not matter if she … If the camera is focused on that junction, it does not matter if she stopped, but if she crossed the line.


fully crossed the line plus about 10 yards but not just the front wheels over it.
