Unfairly Fined for Red Signal Offence

Apparently that constitutes as a red signal offence and I get fined. I disagree personally, I hadn't even come close to crossing the line.

I was however approaching quite quickly and slammed the breaks when I was about 5/10 yards away, ending there where you see on the screenshot.

Happens at many red lights, not just this one! :)

Hmm. That's bad, even by ETS2 standards. Did the truck roll back slightly, as in it would have hit the line before reaching it's present position?

It may have rolled back, but not far enough that it was over the line in the first place - which I would assume should be the (realistic) gauge for whether it's running a red or not.

If you come across such a place again then please provide coordinates.

I found 1 in Strasbourg turning right during a journey from Torino to Copenhagen. I was at least a metre from the line.

Copenhagen? Has the "Going North" DLC been released yet or are you on Promods?
Either way, short of a coordinate (Read HERE) we cannot confirm your findings.

Hmmm it does seem to be a problem, I just had a red light offence in Linz even though I was not over the line.
Unlike what the first poster said, the offence occurred when I was barely rolling forward, with the speed showing 0 km/h.
  • Linz at (sec+0003+0003);13582.6;73.1694;13859.4
  • version 1.12.1s
  • No mods
  • Red light offences are, by their nature, not always reproducible

I am looking into it but so far i haven't been able to reproduce. Will have to set up my wheel so i can creep onto the line.
And yes, i will set my red light probability to 100% through a mod to absolutely verify this if i can't reproduce under normal circumstances.

I think this also could be influented by different truck brands so it would also be good to post your truck and type of chassi ;)

That's possible. I was using a 2012 Volvo FH 4x2 with the Globetrotter XL cabin.
