Infraction traffic tickets

If the police stop you for driving too fast or running a red light, they can charge you with an infraction and give you a "Notice to Appear" ticket. If you don't have proof of your car insurance, you'll be charged with an infraction for driving without proof of insurance.

What to Do When You Get a Traffic Ticket Infraction traffic tickets

If you have proper ID and promise to come to court by signing a "Notice to Appear" ticket, you probably won't have to go to jail. The police officer will ask you to sign the ticket. Signing doesn't mean you're guilty. It just means you promise to go to court or pay the fine. You could pay $370 or more for each infraction. If you get a photo/red-light or photo/railroad-grade crossing ticket, you'll get a notice in the mail about how to handle the ticket. If you don't want to go to court, ask the court if you can plead guilty and pay the fine by mail, pay to go to traffic school, or have a trial by mail (also called a "trial by written declaration"). If you plead guilty and pay the fine, you'll get points on your driving record and your car insurance may cost more. If you don't go to court or pay the fine, your license can be suspended and the court can charge you with a misdemeanor and issue a warrant for your arrest. http://www.courtinfo.ca.gov/selfhelp/traffic/info.htm

This will depend on what jurisdiction you are in, as different states and countries have different rules. Common offences that might cause you to lose your license include: -Persistently breaking the speed limit -Running red lights -Driving under the influence of illegal drugs -Driving above the legal limit for alcohol -Driving dangerously in other ways. Normally, for your license to be suspended, you will have to be taken to court.

If you are running the red light - they should take your license. You need to pay more attention when you are driving. Not just for other drivers, but for yourself, too.
