Not fined when going straight on at red lights [NOTED]

#1 Post by jarvik79 » 21 Mar 2016 17:02

Not sure if this is a "bug", or an oversight, or known and just not found a workable system yet, but anyway...

Step 1: Be in the right-hand lane approaching a red traffic light.
Step 2: Indicate that you're turning right.
Step 3: Keep indicating, and blast straight on instead, through the red light
Step 4: Stop indicating once you've crossed the intersection
Step 5: PROFIT!!! (Or more accurately in this case, "AVOID LOSS!!!" :) )

Perhaps there should be a check somewhere (the opposite stop line, perhaps?) that you actually did indeed turn right?

Hey, did you have to squeal ;)

You can even pass a red light unfined in the opposite lane, at least with two lanes per direction. That's unlike ETS2, so I think it may be on purpose... or do the trigger gates have to be manually put in?

I don't think you should be fined for every red light. IRL unless the light has a camera or a police car is nearby, you may well get away with driving through a red light. I'm all for red light cameras or even random red light fines, but not for every red light.
Never argue with idiots. They bring you down to their level and beat you with experience.

It goes like this : if you pass a red light you have 70% chance of getting fined and 100% chance if there is police car in your proximity (plus a double amount), but cheating it by indicating right turn and going straight did worked so I guess I will have to do something about it.

But I don't think that this is relevant since if you want to drive like a maniac and play all that Mad Max freaky business you can just disable police in settings :) (But yea I know, Ill report it and well get it fixed, you can't just cheat the police like we all do in real life in here )

Oh my...


Also, going in opposite lane don't work anymore, you will still get fined by that probability (70%).
