Concord Police Remind You To Stay Safe, Avoid Red Light Violations


More than 50 percent of fatal and injury collisions occur at or near intersections, and most of the time, red light violations are a contributing factor, according to the Concord Police Department.

You can avoid these costly and dangerous violations by obeying the speed limit, slowing down early and never trying to beat the yellow light.

As long as it’s yellow go on thru, my dash cams have saved me a few times by unmounting it and showing it to the officer standing at my window that I was all the way through the intersection on yellow and the front of my car passing through the opposite first crosswalk line while still yellow so no ticket issued.
I don’t run red lights but yellow lights yes I do, no law against that.

Depends if you are the light and it turns yellow, yes because stopping suddenly could end up someone rear ending you, if a few cars behind then no.

Reminder- Way too many knuckleheads zooming around these days to rely on the lights. Always, always, always look in all directions of the intersection before taking off from a light when it turns green. People speeding up for the yellow and disregarding the red lights could ruin your day. That is all!

You can find that online (uniform bail schedule).

The power went out at about 4:30 AM. I was looking out the window and even the signals were out. Amazing how many people don’t treat the intersection as a 4-way stop.

Lights stay yellow 1 second for every 10 miles of the speed limit. That means lights east of Oak Grove to Clayton Rd stay green for 4.5 seconds. How far can you go in 4 seconds. I can get through the intersection in 3 seconds.

So, the article is implying that our Claycord and other CCC city police departments are going to start enforcing traffic laws again? As they once did years ago in the past?
