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.

you will have to go to court and argue it.

 

downsides are that if found guilty penalty may be higher

Amber isnt the new green. You admit that you couldnt stop safely in time so do you think that a magistrate will think the 2 officers were wrong in their statement that it was red?

"Amber Gambler"

Trust me on this one (nearly 40 years of driving). Posts above are correct.

 

Slow down !! and as the younger generation would say.

"Suck it up"

If contested; You may find you end up with "Driving without due care".

 

As SS said: Higher Fine.

Depends on how long the light was on amber and how far away from it you were. Point of no return comes to mind.


Any advice i give is my own and is based solely on personal experience. If in any doubt about a situation , please contact a certified legal representative or debt counsellor..

2 v 1

 

That's poor odds, whatever happened.

"You can dispute the allegation, but the mere fact that the lights were not red, does not provide you with a defence. If you crossed on amber, you have still committed the offence, unless you can show that it was unsafe to stop. If the Police Officer can convince the Court that there was no reason why you should not have been able to stop on amber, you could be convicted. The fact that it is his word against yours does not prevent a prosecution, although clearly, the outcome will depend heavily on each party's version of events/credibility."

 

so as above 2 v 1 not looking good
