How much does a ticket cost that you get for making a left NOT right turn on red? Let’s say it’s green for going straight and accidently?

You go on a red for making a left turn? Or let’s say you do an unsafe maneuver and start turning on a left while it’s red and luckily (safely) make it across? (Meaning it’s a 4 lane road / right off highway and your all the way on the right and make a left (go across all lanes Bc it’s red for going straight) but then as your proceeding this move it turns red?

    Different localities set the moving violation fees at different places. But in California this would be several hundreds of dollars.

    Fines for ANY offense vary by jurisdiction.

    As a rule, if the light changes while you are in the intersection, you won't be cited for completing the turn, even if you shouldn't have been in the intersection to begin with.

    In the case you describe, you would be cited for turning left from the right lane, even with a full green the entire time.

    In some places, left turn on red is allowed at an intersection of two one-way streets. Otherwise it's the same as running a red light.

    Depends on where you are at, most places do not have cameras so if you didn't get pulled over, then you probably got away with one.

    It sounds like a one pointer citation. Usually you can check your county court site for a schedule of fines. If you can't pay, there is usually a "hardship waiver," allowing you to pay over time and/or community service.

    Depends on WHERE dumbass The fines aren't the same everywhere and we aren't clairvoyant so don't know where in this big world you did such a stupid thing. IT's going to be the same as a ticket for running a red light or stop sign wherever it is you were driving. You can look it up yourself.

    FAIL

    Since you didn't feel compelled to tell anyone where you are, the instruction is clear: Call your local police and ask them. It might be a hundred; it might be a thousand.

    Ticket prices aren't universal

    Why be an a**? All the nonsense machinations you were going through... Why not simply wait and turn on the green light?
