Running a yellow light ticket Can you beat a ticket in Wisconsin?

Blowing through a red traffic light is not the only way to be penalized in Wisconsin. According to Wis. Stat. § 346.37, most motorists should stop at a yellow light, barring certain circumstances, as long as it can be done safely. Penalties could include a traffic ticket and loss of points.

Ticket for running a yellow light in Wisconsin

In Wisconsin, how long does a driving through yellow traffic light charge stay on your record?

Driving through a yellow light when there was enough time to stop at the intersection could lead to a ticket, 3 points removed from your driver's license, and if you accumulate 12 or more demerit points in any 12-month period, your license will be suspended.
