Can you please define. How do we know if they are entering the zone, and not just passing near it?  Just by driving towards it? even if they never touch the Red.

This would be no different from seeing a suspect leaving an illegal area, it would be your own judgement based on what you saw to determine whether they had left/entered the illegal area. Obviously if you are wrong and they didn't enter/leave the illegal area then you acted upon the believed probable cause you will face disciplinary action.
