Beating a dead horse

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!

    Okay, Miss traffic expert. That makes SO much sense. I was trying to wrap my mind around what you were talking about before, but now I GOT it!

    Do you see those funky tire lines – sorta like plaid but with the turns in it?? I’m thinking that would make a cute fabric design….

    oh — That is clear! The picture is very helpful. Actually then you can go a long way into the intersection before you run the light.

    I will share with Joe with Halloween question — that is great!

    Thanks for the picture, but I still maintain that is an extremely confusing law! Good grief, whoever planned that out didn’t have enough to do. Give him/her 3 little kids to keep track of and a house to build and a business to run… right?! Sure do enjoy hearing all about your life, tho, so THANKS for sharing:)

    Joe’s answer for Haley is “Yes.”

    I believe it is very counter-intuitive. I mean – good heavens! I was thinking “well, I am passed the stop line (the white line before the crosswalk) so I should keep going.” Ah well- no big deal really in the grand scheme of life.
