What does a flashing red light mean?

A flashing red light (the most common Flashing Signals ticket) means you must stop at the marked limit line at an intersection first then proceed when safe. When approaching an intersection, a flashing red traffic light effectively becomes a stop sign. The rule of the right of way then applies in turns order. See the rules of “yielding to the right of way” in the answers to common questions section.

Flashing red lights can be the result of a power outage, harsh weather conditions, construction work, dark areas, or they can even be regularly scheduled to flash during certain periods of the day according to traffic patterns in a specific area.

The bottom line is when you come to a traffic light that is flashing red, you need treat it as if you were approaching a stop sign. If there is a traffic control officer or police officer directing traffic, motorists are required to follow their instructions.

How much does a flashing red light ticket cost in California?

As of 2018, the typical fine for violating VC 21457 is $490. On top of that, a 1 point conviction would be gained towards your driver’s record which increases your car insurance premium (unless you enroll into traffic school to pass the exam after a guilty verdict/guilty plea, if eligible). By dismissing your ticket, iTicket Fight helps you save money!

*All estimates include base fine, mandatory 20% California surcharge, and penalty fees and assessments.
