This is a request for an official interpretation of the following traffic control device: Tucson, Arizona has added a transverse white line at the prolongation of the curb lines in some intersections. The stated purpose of the line is to mark the point of violation for red light running. The line is accompanied by a legend "WAIT". I have attached a scan of the image provided by City of Tucson Traffic Engineering. It is no longer to scale.
What is the legal status of this "violation" line? Specifically:
Thank you for your attention to this matter.
