  1. Looking for advice please I have just been stopped for allegedly going through a red light The officer pulled me over and asked why I went through a red light to which I replied I had not He then said his was green as I went through so that tells him mine was red I once again told him I had not gone through a red light and that it was just turning Amber as I was more or less on top of it He then proceeded to take my details and then hand me just a yellow slip with no details of the offence and hardly any information Can you tell me if it’s worth fighting in court

  3. I may or may not be receiving an NIP in the post soon. But I wish to vent my spleen somewhat over the circumstances of two incidents within the last few days involving traffic lights. The first was at a flyover with a roundabout underneath. There were three sets of lights to pass through in order for me to proceed onto a slip road where traffic merges from a 30 MPH zone to a 50 MPH portion of the motorway. I passed through the first set of lights on green at 20-25 MPH. The second set of lights changed to amber as I was crossing from one side of the road onto the slip r
  4. I bought three matching units, two small and one large, it was well before I was ready but I loved them. They were put away until I finished decorating and sorting my house and this was told to assistant at the time. On finally putting them up by an electrician the large one keeps blowing a fuse when switched on...it takes some 30 bulbs. I returned it to the shop and told them it was faulty. They have said its not faulty and that maybe my wiring needs updating. My house is a new build and as up to date as it could be. My question is if it is too big and overload
  5. Hello everyone, Hope you can help. Last year I jumped a red light - not on purpose, didn't realise I had. When the letter with the offer of a condition FPN arrived, I was perfectly willing to hold up my hands as it was certainly my fault. I duly paid up the £100 and thought no more about it. Unfortunately, it being a few days before Christmas, I completely forgot to send in my driving license in order to have the requisite 3 points added. This weekend, a court summons arrived - which initially perplexed me as I had evidence I had paid the fine. A call to the magistrates office con
  6. Last week I was travelling home from work on a busy stretch of residential road. I came up to a set of green traffic lights at a crossroads, and had fully crossed the line when the car in front of me hit his brakes. as not to block the people in the oncoming lane from turning, I left a gap between myself and the car in front. By the time the cars in front had shuffled up, the other set of lights were on green so I stayed where I was. I could see the other set of lights, but I could no longer see mine. I waited until a couple of seconds afte
  7. I was pulled for running a red light by 2 officers, i asked them for proof that i jumped a red light ,only to be told we witnessed you, I'm convinced the light was amber when i passed, if i braked i would have passed the white line, a £100 and 3 points does not go well with me, for something i did not do, as its my word against theirs, I do not believe both of them were only watching me at a busy roundabout, is there anything i can do to avoid the penalty? any help would be much appreciated.
  8. Hi my partners car has had a warning light show up. It is a picture of a cog. Upon research he has found out it apparently means "fuel additive to be checked every 37,000 miles". Can anybody tell me what this means, and which fuel additive we're talking about and what additive needs to be added and where? Also a steering wheel with an exclamation mark in the picture of the steering wheel Many thanks
  9. For years I could not find a decent light that did not cost more than my second hand bike. Then I found a Cree one with external batteries for under £30 (incl postage) on the Internet. It does the biz. Light on the right in the photograph (left when viewed on the saddle). Attachment is simple but effective. Not seen in the shops. I still use a cheap headlight for town riding and as a spare. On the left.
  10. Ed Balls, the Shadow Chancellor, has been fined for jumping a red light as he left Parliament. Mr Balls was caught on camera as he drove home along the Embankment, in central London, after leaving a late night Commons sitting last December. The Labour MP has now been caught for traffic offences on three separate occasions. More ... Here is some cheerful news during these hard times lol.
  11. Just had a memo from my office NIP sent to them because I went over a red light it says 1 second on the form, if prosecuted is it just a fine and points normally, if so how many points and any idea what the fine might be. And yes it was a camera and they have the photographic evidence so i probably did do it.
  12. Hi Thanks in anticipation for your help. To be brief my wife's vehicle was photographed going through a red light in May this is not in question the offense happened. The issue here is it was at a time we were both in the car and neither one of us could have been driving. When the NIP came through I requested the photo evidence which duly arrived and proved inconclusive. The number plate and offence were clear from the rear of the vehicle however occupants could only be seen as smudgy silhouettes with no clear identification. The form that requests she identif
  13. I went through a light on a traffic light controlled roundabout. I was stopped by the traffic police and told that I had ran a red light because *their* light was green. They were waiting at the lights of the next junction of the roundabout. As far as I'm concerned that's an inference based on an assumption. If I'd been charged with a speeding offence they'd need to produce a calibration certificate for any equipment used to prove that charge. As far as I'm aware, traffic lights do not come with calibration certificates. Is this worth defending in court? At the moment I'm
  14. Hello. I'm Jason and I have an issue with a letter I got today stating I ran a red light. They state they have photographic evidence from an approved device, however I really don't remember doing that at all. It states that the light had been red for 0.9 seconds. They wish for me to fill out this form within 28 days informing them who the driver was to issue proceedings against me. However on the reverse of the paper they answer some questions for you and under the part that says "I would like to see photographic evidence held against me" the police answer is "the evidence
