Red Light Violation(Issued by an Officer)
It is not illegal to deliberately drive through a yellow light. VC21452(a) says that a yellow light means only that the traffic facing the light is “warned” that a red light will soon follow. As long as your vehicle’s front part has entered the intersection, or passed the limit line before the light has turned red, you have not broken the law. The officer who cited you, in most cases, would not have been in the proper position to have a good view of exactly when you crossed into the intersection.
