Don’t Believe Everything You Read Online – Unless Its On Patterson Law

Question:

Dear Sirs – my question is as follows:

I turned left at a crossroads with traffic lights that had a green arrow shaped green light and a round blue sign with a white arrow in (both straight) which as I now know means straight on only. So I turned left and 2 policemen saw me on their mountain bikes.

This is apparently offence 169 and comes with a £60 fine and 3 points! Seem extremely harsh.

Therefore my question is; is this an endorsable offence?

I’ve read online that failure to comply with a traffic or police sign is non-endorsable.

Graham Says:

I’m afraid it’s an offence of contravening a traffic sign and does carry 3 penalty points and a £60 fixed penalty.

Sorry but it is endorsable. Don’t trust or believe everything you read online – except the stuff on our site!!
