Not only is running a red light illegal, it is also very dangerous. You should never run a red light, for your own safety, and for the safety of everyone on the road with you. However, we understand that sometimes things happen, and if you find yourself with a red-light violation, we are here to help you through the process.
It’s important to note that there are two types of red light violations. If you run a red light with a camera, this is a civil offense, and will not add points to your license. However, you will be subject to a $50 fine. Red light infractions are a different story. Drivers with these infractions can receive a fine of up to $100, plus court costs. In addition to these fees, these infractions add 3 points to your driver’s record. Oftentimes, drivers can get these points deducted by attending a course.
Not only does running red lights lead to legal and financial hassles, it can also be deadly. If you run a red light and cause an accident, you can face more serious charges, especially if the accident results in any fatalities. Ultimately, running a red light just isn’t worth it.
