I’ve read some posts on the issue I’m raising, from some years ago. I figure there might be more to add at this time .
This concerns a traffic infringement notice I received recently. Red light. I assumed it was running a red light which I’ve never done. Turns out it was a claim that I entered a crossing on red. I requested images. I was given two.
Both show me in the pedestrian crossing (no pedestrians in sight at all on either side) and traffic from the adjacent side in the intersection now in front of me. I did not enter the intersection, just entered the crossing by about a tyre diameter. The images both are 20 plus seconds after the alleged infringement. I requested images showing that I entered the crossing on red. I was told no. That the two images, 20 plus seconds after my car came to a stop, will be what is presented to court if I contest it. Which I might, unless swayed otherwise.
Anyone able to suggest why they won’t provide me with images of my vehicle entering the crossing when the lights turn red? And what costs are involved with the Magistrates cost if I fail? They don’t withdraw red light infringement notices under any circumstance so they say.
Thank you in advance.
