Customer reply replied 2 years ago
same words on both infringement notices "proceed through a red traffic light"
the summons that i have received says "failed to stop at a red traffic light"
Solicitor: Daniel, Solicitor replied 2 years ago

Hello
Well it is the same offence sadly. A court will allow the amendment.
All you can do at this point now is either plead guilty of fight the matter in court.

What assistance can we be of?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
how much would it cost for representation?
the officer that made the booking said to me at the time "you did stop at the red traffic light but you proceeded?"
Solicitor: Daniel, Solicitor replied 2 years ago

We do not attend court, but give information online.
I do however represent a lot of people in your situation in practice.
What I would strongly suggest is that you obtain a copy of the video footage if any immediately.
If it does show you driving across the line when the light was red, then plead guilty.
If not, then ask the police to again withdraw the charge.

Please rate my service. I am able to answer further questions without further charge also.
