Traffic Light Offences FAQs

Traffic light offences and the motoring laws that govern them can be confusing & complex. Below are commonly asked questions answered by an experienced motoring law solicitor.

Q: If I don’t stop for an amber traffic light, is it an offence?

A: If you don’t stop for an amber light, it isn’t a specific offence, but you could in theory be prosecuted for careless driving.

Also, you don’t have to stop for an amber light if you are so close to the stop line that you can’t stop safely without going past that line.
