Re: Ticket for Disregarding a Stop Light
do you have the specific law cited?
(b) If the signal exhibits a steady yellow indication, vehicular traffic facing the signal shall stop before entering the nearest crosswalk at the intersection or at a limit line when marked, but if the stop cannot be made in safety, a vehicle may be driven cautiously through the intersection.
I really hate this law. It allows the cop to make the call as to whether they thought it was safe to stop of not.
If you are going to contest it, you will have to convince a judge of that.
There was no way at the time I could have safely stopped for the light,
I am not an attorney and any advice is not to be construed as legal advice. You might even want to ignore my advice. Actually, there are plenty of real attorneys that you might want to ignore as well.
