Question for you guys - in NSW at what point can a driver be charged for a red light offence? I.e. if my car is already in the intersection (front wheels are well beyond the line, possibly rear wheels are on the line), light then goes from orange to red and the camera goes off is that an offence?

Cheers....

I think ull find the answer is yes


in my opinion.. you should ONLY get penalised for not obeying a traffic signal (running a red) when the opposite lights have changed to green..

not when the lights facing u have gone red..
they give that buffer of 'all lights being red' for a reason ... so u shouldnt be fined/snapped for going through during this period

Ahhh great morning for me. Waiting for a tow truck after my car broke down on the way to work.
I suspect it's a heater tap or hose, coolant is all over the floor. Fantastic

It wasnt the heater core luckly, but it did end up costing $420...
Seals, hoses, thermostat seal, a few other bits and pieces.
And yes that meant i had the whole day off and went shopping and spent more money!! lol. Not a good idea when i have my 21st in a couple weeks! oh well.

Bight side: Im lucky i didnt overheat the motor.

9's are very doable, 245/35 or 235/35 to be safe.

went to court for a prehearing (hearing to see if i should get a contest mention), had an argument with kingston councils prosecutor about what constitutes leaving a parking area, yadda yadda, she didnt want it to go to contest mention, judge agreed with me so booked in a contest mention date, where the parking inspector has to come to court too so i can question him.

2 days later i get a letter from kingston council stating that the officer isnt available to attend court on the given date and therefore they will be withdrawing the charges.

Me 1: Council 0
