This is the scenario.
It's rush hour (17:30) on one of the busiest junctions in Nottingham. I'm following slow moving traffic over the line as the lights change. Sure enough I'm flashed by the lights camera. Realising that I can't proceed across the road I reverse the car to a safe position as far back as possible.
My defence is:
1. I never crossed over the road i.e. "jumped the lights" which is what the camera light is there for.
2. I reversed back to a safe position.
3. It was rush hour and slow moving traffic which caused the problem in the first place.
You are the jury. Should I be fined with 3 points deducted from my licence? Even if I submit this defence do you think they will try and fine me anyway (bureacratic British holier-than-thou jobsworth up-yer-arse justice?)
