    Let me get this straight . . . I'm on a California road doing the speed
    limit approaching an intersection with a green light. Five feet before I
    enter the intersection, the light turns yellow. Having no choice, I safely
    proceed through the intersection on a yellow light. Now I'm guilty of a
    moving violation?!? What does california think a yellow light is for? Why
    don't they just have red and green, if the yellow means red? -Dave

      Actually, Marjorie, according to what I've been able to learn, it is NOT
      a violation to enter an intersection on a yellow light in Californa;
      either you got a capricious cop (hardly unheard of -- did you challenge
      it in court?) or what you were actually ticketed for was being unable to
      clear the intersection when the light turned red.

        Actually, I know someone else who CLAIMED she got a ticket
        for going throught a yellow light. She had other mental
        problems, also.

        Seriously, there is only one ACTUAL violation that might be
        considered going through a yellow light -- that's the
        anti-gridlock law which specifies that if you enter an
        intersection, there must be room to clear it by the
        time your light becomes red.

            : If the light turns red after you've passed that line and you're still : in the intersection...you just ran a red. Actually, my understanding was that if you enter the intersection while the light is still yellow, then you may legally proceed through the intersection--even if the light turns red while you're in the intersection. As long as you've crossed the line before it turns red, it's not a violation. Comments from the driving newsgroup??
            In Indiana, as long as it's yellow when you enter, you're in the clear.
            In the mornings, as I drive my daughter to school, I have to pass
            right in front of the police station. This morning, one block
            away from the station, I hit the light on yellow and went on
            through, right in front of a police car who was waiting at the
            cross street. I didn't get stopped (thank goodness, since we were
            running late!)

              The way it is explained here is that you are supposed to anticipateand when you see the yellow, you know you are going to have tostop. Too many people speed up to get through that yellow, butby the time they are actually in the middle of the intersection, thelight has turned to red.
              Which is perfectly legal in many states.
              If the light turns red after you've passed that line and you're stillin the intersection...you just ran a red.
              Incorrect in California, the state of the original poster.

                  No, it is not a moving violation in California to go through a yellow
                  light. You have just proved the opposite of your case -- you have
                  proved that following the law is not sufficient to avoid a ticket.

                    Is there an anti-gridlock in Californiai?

                      Actually, Marjorie, according to what I've been able to learn, it is NOT a violation to enter an intersection on a yellow light in Californa; either you got a capricious cop (hardly unheard of -- did you challenge it in court?) or what you were actually ticketed for was being unable to clear the intersection when the light turned red.
                      I got caught in a known trap. A friend of mine also got caught at the
                      exact same spot, on the ECR right in front of the Stanford fields. The
                      trap is that the yellow is SO short that you can't make it through
                      even if you were going 75 mph, so they sit there and pick people off.
                      Now that I know it's there, I have seen plenty of people get ticketed.
                      I did try to take it to court and was told that if the light turns red
                      whilst you are in the intersection, you get the ticket. As the light
                      is only yellow for a couple of seconds and it's a very wide
                      intersection, there's no fighting it. They got me.

The officer cited me (1)22350 CVC for speed and (2) 27360.5 CVC for Seatbelt. I got a notice in the mail to pay a bail of $427.75. I think this is very high ! Any pointers / ideas on why this amount is so high and how can I get a break up of the amount ? I havent been able to get details over phone and am planning to go to the traffic court to find out more. Thanks in advance ...

                        if you go to traffic court that is your best shot -- they might roll
                        back the fine -- or have you go to traffic school instead -- at worst,
                        you are where you started. It does give you a chance to tell the judge
                        that you always belt the kids in and that he took the belt off AFTER the
                        car stopped.

                          California has the anti-gridlock laws, thank goodness. And most folks
                          seem to follow the rules.

                          In Mass, I was regularly stuck when a light turned green, unable to go
                          ahead because of cars in the intersection that had entered on a yellow
                          but were unable to clear the intersection before the light turned red.
                          Here, that almost never happens to me.
