Blocking the box could cost you $500


Atlanta Police made it a point to reminds drivers to avoid “blocking the box” as traffic plans surrounding the I-85 collapse set in.

According to a City of Atlanta press release, “Motorists block the box when they enter an intersection before traffic ahead has cleared and remain in the intersection after the light has turned red. Blocking the box increases traffic congestion and reduces public safety for pedestrians, bicyclists and emergency vehicles.”

Blocking the box can lead to fines up to $500 and points marked off on your permanent driving record. Blocking the box will be heavily enforced at the following intersections, police said.
