Coming to a complete and full stop at a stop sign is required by law. Yet, everyday we see vehicles perform the “rolling stop.” Not only does this “rolling stop” put the vehicle’s driver and it’s passengers at risk, but also other vehicles approaching the intersection along with any pedestrians who may be crossing the intersection. The thick, large white line that goes across the intersection is your mark to STOP!
A stop sign ticket in Broward County can be over $260, while in Miami-Dade County, as well as Broward County, the fines associated with a stop sign ticket can exceed $270. In addition to these hefty fines, drives can expect to receive 3 points on their license. The Traffic Ticket Team has crafted many stop sign ticket defenses for clients in the past that have helped to reduce or dismiss the stop sign ticket. If the limit line on the roadway is very difficult to see, or if the stop sign itself was not clearly visible, you may have a case and a chance at dismissing the ticket.
