Violation of traffic control signals, including running a red light or failing to stop at a yellow (amber) light, is a serious traffic offense in many countries, including India. In India, violating a red light signal or failing to stop at a yellow (amber) light can result in a fine, license suspension, or even imprisonment, depending on the severity of the offense and the consequences of the violation.
The red light indicates that drivers must come to a complete stop and wait until the light turns green. Failing to stop at a red light can cause accidents and endanger the lives of other road users, including pedestrians.
The yellow (amber) light indicates that the signal is about to turn red, and drivers should prepare to stop. If a driver enters the intersection after the light has turned yellow (amber), they may be considered to have violated the signal, especially if they had enough time to stop safely.
