What is the penalty for running a red light?
The penalty for a convicted red light violation is one point on your driving record and a minimum fine of $380. Traffic school is an option for those who meet the court requirements. Information can be obtained through the San Mateo County Superior Court. If you have received a red light citation at an intersection equipped with digital video, you can schedule an appointment by calling 650-330-6693 to review it at the Menlo Park Police Department. You can also view the video of the violation online.
