police traffic offence letter.. help

I've just had a letter through the door "notice of intended prosecution"

Driver failing to comply with traffic signs.

It doesn't say exactly what i did and i dont know what it was either.

1) how do i find out
2) what am i looking at? Points? Fine?

    Just wait they normally tell you in another letter. Depends what you do could be points or could just be a fine for going into a bus lane or something.

    Ok so ive had tthis through

    'failed to comply with red/green arrow / lane closure flashing light signals - manual detection'

    Is this traffic lights? I dont know of any lane closures in the area it says so i can only assume it is traffic lights?

    Sounds like the lane signals that have arrows or X's above the lanes to show which one you can use. For example a road might have 5 lanes. 2 going north, 2 going south & the middle one changes depending on the time of day.  If commuters are in the north travelling south they will have the lane in the morning rush hour, then it might then be allocated the other way round for the evening rush hour

    There's nothing like that though....its only a little 30mpg ring road. Do you think the police station will be able to tell me if i ask there?

    Police station probably won't but you can request proof iirc by writing back to them. Then they show you what you did, or certainly did when i was speeding.

    The problem i have is, I may have run a red light but if its anyrhing else, i dont think ive done it. However the letter basicly says , confess quickly and we'll let you apply for a driver awarnes course.

    £85 driver awareness course and no points
    or
    £100 fine and 3 points

    Guess im best just confessing and assuming i did

    You can ask for proof though it shouldn't effect your standing on the course. They have to give you time and can't legally expect you to confess.
