Where an Intersection Begins

Red Light Intersection

A vehicle must have ENTERED the INTERSECTION (red box) before the signal turns RED.  In Arizona, the point of violation can be simply defined as the connection of the curb lines.  This is a line from the curb face on one side of the street to the curb face on the opposite side of the street. 

The crosswalk may not define the beginning of the intersection.
