    Jeeze. That is terrible. So i'm guessing you didn't contest it in court? With things like that it's almost not worth trying to beat it in court, no matter how silly it may seem.

WAIT till everthing is clear. Then make your turn. If the traffic going the other way comes and you are still sitting out there.. They have to wait for you to clear the intersection. Take your time. Wait till it is safe. And enjoy driving!!! (I do, a favorite past time!!)

    Thats not entirely true. Anti-Gridlock law provides that you may not enter an intersection without being able to pass through without stopping in the middle. Even if the light is green, if you cannot pass through the intersection, you are required by law to stop behind the limit line and wait.
    There are only 2 infinite things... the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not too sure about the universe.

    I think that is a California law... it's not true here... Although I know they are trying to pass it (he mentioned it) but not for anti gridlock.. but to help prevent left turn accedents. I think that will make it worse personally...

    Well that's strange because when my Dad ws having his heart attack at the hospital my mom was caught speeding, but was let off the hook.

    It might also have been because the cop had previously had a heart attack and my mom was balling her eyes out.

    I run red lights regularly. So I say "don't sweat it" There's nothing more useless than a red left arrow when there's no reason for it. Same with "No Turn On Red" BS.
