I will add some more content here soon.
For now I will say that my very first ever penalty points was from a fixed traffic lights camera in Oldham, Manchester just past where the railway bridge has been demolished on Huddersfield road. I was a teenager at the time & just started my driving job at the time not long.
I in NOT WAY AT ALL WHAT SO EVER ACTED TO RUN A SET OF TRAFFIC LIGHTS IN FACT I DID NOT EVEN KNOW I HAD GONE THROUGH A SUPPOSED RED LIGHT. I DID NOT EVEN KNOW THE CAMERAS EXISTED. And I hereby state that I did NOT drive through a red light, it was some kind of timing issue. I was a few meters away from the white line at 30mph when the lights just went from green, orange really fast and so close to the line you can NOT SLAM THE BRAKES ON in any safe way for people behind you. The speed was really quick of the light changes and then you are just through. I did not even think in any way it was close to an offence it was just what happens when the lights suddenly change and you are so close to them at normal speed
I was absolutely devastated and dissapointed when I got a police letter through stating I have offended a crime. Since then it has been IMPOSSIBLE TO OBTAIN A CLEAN DRIVING LICENCE. NO MATTER HOW HARD YOU TRY TO DRIVE SAFE THEY SOMEHOW CATCH YOU OUT, JUST WHEN YOU ARE ABOUT TO GET A CLEAN LICENCE. IT IS LIKE THEY DO NOT WANT YOU TO HAVE A CLEAN DRIVING LICENCE. The points are like mites crawling over you you just cannot get them off!!! not if you have a driving job, or drive a lot of hours. It has been impossible and now I drive under the speed limit so much I am causing other people hinderance.
The other time I had a red light camera incident (only had 2) was more recent years. It was similar that I was at normal speed, got upto the line to go through, then they just changed. But there was something really wierd about the stop line, A strange box that confused where you stop at. I actually DID STOP, just that it was past the line.
I had to go to court to defend it as I had 9 points and in court I had an emotional breakdown which was the worst experience of my life ever. I was shaking and crying because my driving licence is like a degree to me it is by achievement, my document my qualification. I got fleeced £4,000 by Freeman of manchester who sent a £350 barrister who did not even speak to me outside the court room. I was led to believe I was getting freeman himself, but apparently he only shows up if its a celebrity for PR. I managed to get off on "special reasons" and this means you dont get penalty points but they get so say they are not paying your fees or court costs. (I believe this special reasons was designed as part of the scam framework so lorry drivers could keep driving but the lawyers & court got the cash still)
Anyways, THE PHOTOGRAPH SHOWED MY BRAKE LIGHTS ON. I DID STOP. BUT THE PHOTO CANNOT PROVE THIS. A PHOTO IS COMPLETELY USELESS AT TRAFFIC LIGHTS.
ONLY VIDEO CAN TRULY SHOW WHAT EVENTS OCCURED AND HOW AND WHY AND THIS IS ABSOLUTELY THE TRUTH.
YOU CAN NOT EXPLAIN JACK SHIT FROM A PHOTO AT TRAFFIC LIGHTS ESPECIALLY WHEN THE LIGHTS TIMING IS RIGGED TO CATCH PEOPLE OUT.
And THEN we get to the strange boxes & cycle tracks.. when did THOSE get conjured up??
Well we will look into Chief constable Steve Finnegans square of death very soon in line with his green safe cycle boxes at the sides, where the green safe box is IN FRONT of the line of the "SQUARE OF DEATH".
