My question involves a traffic ticket from the state of: Callifornia
Hi, I happened to get citation for red light violation. I was at the intersection of the freeway and normal road. (I was on the normal road) I saw the cross signal has just turned red from far behind the limit line, I steadily hold my brake while approaching the "limit line." I saw the light on my direction was still red, so I hit the brake and tried to stop, and then while I did it, the light on my direction turned green. So I let go of my brake and continued driving. After one entire block, a police pulled me over. The first word came to me was in an assumption that I was drunk driving, then I said I didn't drink, and the police turned the topic over to the red light violation issue saying I did not wait behind the limit line until the light turned green. I would like to appear the court to see if there's possibility that I can get a rid of this ticket, because I really think that I didn't violate the rule of red light violation. Or is there anyone that can state the red light violation for me please?
Thank you very much for the suggestion/information.
