There’s nothing worse than being slammed with a hefty traffic fine.
But it’s even worse when you didn’t even know the rule existed.
Hundreds of Queensland drivers have been fined for driving through orange traffic lights.
Yep, that’s right.
In Queensland, it’s actually illegal to run an orange light.
Motorists who drive through an orange light in Queensland are faced with the same fine for running a red light – $348 and a loss of three demerit points.
In the last year alone, Queensland drivers have paid $600,000 in fines just for this one little-known law.
Since 2015, more than 5300 drivers have been caught running an orange light.
