Went through on amber light..
I admitted that i went through amber lights at the point where i was stopped by the police.
there were 2 policeofficers in the patrol car. Th policeman wrote the incorrect time and date on the notice that was given to me. The police were on the right side of me as i went through amber lights.
Thanks for any help given.
If you have admitted that you went through on amber then you have admitted the offence. Its an offence to go through the light on red or amber. You can only defend going through on amber if you can show that it was not safe to stop.
You will have to prove that issue by giving evidence on oath.
The mistakes regarding the timing will be irrelevant if you have admitted going through on amber..
Was it safe to stop?
Have you got any points already? If so how many?

A new client came to us after being banned by the Magistrates for 6 months. He had accumulated 12 points within 3 years and the Magistrates court banned him for 6 months. The client tried to argue exceptional hardship on his own and the court rejected his argument.
Our client instructed us to represent him at court when he was charged with overloading a hired minibus. He had hired the minibus as he had his extended family visiting for a holiday. At the same time builders were refurbishing his house and asked him if he could help them collect some extra sand and cement. Our client agreed and they went with him to the DIY shop to collect the materials.
Our client was stopped on the way back home for overloading. He was devasted by the charge and the subsequent court proceedings, due to the fact that it was an innocent mistake and he was in the process of applying for an indefinite leave to remain in the UK visa.
He approached many so called motoring lawyers before us who told him to plead guilty and take the fine and points. We acted on his behalf and made a special reasons argument and also an argument under s.48 RTOA 88. The court agreed not to give any points and to impose an absolute discharge meaning that the conviction was imediately spent.
