Red Light Violations

When a driver is faced with a red light they must come to a full stop before entering the intersection. If they fail to do so they could be charged. However if they have already entered the intersection prior to the light turning red then they cannot be charged. Entering the intersection is defined as blocking cross section traffic, either vehicles or pedestrians. This applies when traffic cameras are not involved.

Red light offence carries a penalty of 3 demerit points and a set fine of $260.00 dollars. After court fees the total amount which needs to be paid is $325.00 Dollars. This offence can be difficult to deal with if you lack the proper knowledge.

Certain intersections have traffic cameras which are used to lay the charge for the offence. These charges are made against the owner of the vehicle, not the driver since the driver can not be indentified. Their nature is similar to parking offences. They carry a fine of $260.00 dollars, after court fees the total amount which needs to be paid is $325.00 Dollars. However they do not carry any demerits points or remain on your record.

Here's what our clients are saying...
I can't thank you enough for the hard work you put into defending me for my Careless Driving charge... When your office called me and told me the charge had been dismissed, I couldn't have been happier. You saved my driver's license and cleared my name.

Thank you for (handling) my court case. I especially appreciated winning the case and not just settling for a reduction of the speed - which I could have done myself outside the courtroom. From the first interview in your office until this afternoon, it was all very professional.
