So – none of you probably care…but this is the new and improved picture that shows the WHOLE intersection. (It’s a real aerial of the intersection I got my ticket at.)
SO – if you PASS the bright yellow line after the light turns red (added for illustration purposes only…not there in real life) THEN you are running a red light because you are legally entering the intersection after the light turns red. On this particular intersection (the one I got a ticket from) there is 50 feet between the painted white stop line and the legal intersection… quite confusing…right? Hopefully you can understand it better now that you can see it. Of course, your state law may not be the same. 🙂
I will be quiet now about the traffic school stuff! Onto other things!
