Stoped in the yellow lines (red light traffic)

Hi everyone,

I stuck in the middle of yellow interaction as the red light turned quick so I stoped but unfortunately the camera flashed. Do I still get a fine? And there will be any problem regarding my drive licence or my permit ? And how much the fine cost. I am a new here in Zurich and I have no idea as the yellow line in another EU country allowed you to carry on.

Your help much appreciate.

Re: Stoped in the yellow lines (red light traffic)

The rule that I was taught was that one didn’t enter an intersection if you couldn’t leave it. I’ve been tooted at a few times over the years for following this basic rule, but ...

Re: Stoped in the yellow lines (red light traffic)

Yellow light means you should stop if you can stop before the intersection. Art. 68 SSV You can gamble on your own discretion but be aware the casino has better odds when red shows up. Annex 1 No. 309 OBV Wikipedia reference-linkRoulette

As bowlie said, do not block the intersection. Only enter it if you are certain you can leave it in good time without blocking the cross traffic. Art. 14 Abs. 1 VRV

If you are unfortunate and get caught on top of the induction loop sensor keep calm and do not move the car. It is the movement which will trigger the flash.

But this only applies if you did not endanger any one. If the cross traffic had to stop or slow down the fine will be much, much larger.

Mine was CHF250 for 0.5 seconds through red. Not on a box junction. Nothing to do with permits etc. They just want your money...
