b3, welcome to A2K. There are so many ways your question can be stated and interpreted.

For example, if the sentence reads: Break the traffic rules, it means disobey the speed limit in order to keep traffic flowing.

as you've phrased it, I would think it meant "breaking rules" as in "breaking news".

b3spw, without the context, it's impossible to tell whether "the breaking traffic rules" means something or is a mistake of some sort. At the very least, provide the sentence in which this phrase is found.
