Stop Signs: What, Where and Who

by Seth Azria on 1/02/2024

What

Failing to stop for a stop sign violates New York vehicle and traffic law section 1172a. If convicted, or plead guilty, a driver will:

  • be fined a maximum of $150,
  • pay a $93 (or $88 in cities) surcharge; and,
  • have 3 points added to their driving record.

Where

A driver approaching a stop sign must stop at a clearly marked stop line. If there is no line, then the driver must stop before entering the crosswalk. If there is no crosswalk, the driver must stop nearest to the intersecting roadway with a view of the approaching traffic but without entering the intersection. NY VTL 1172

Who

All drivers must stop at stop signs. But not those drivers who act involuntarily because of unforeseen seizures and blackouts and was unconscious at the time the car ran the stop sign. People v. Soe, 9 Misc. 3d 1069 (J. Ct. 2005).

I have retained Mr. Azria on several occasions for traffic violations and each one turned out in my favor 100%. This is the lawyer to hire when involved in any traffic incidents. I have recommended him to many friends and all have had great results. You people have to try this law firm out, you won't be disappointed. Mr. Azria is the true "heavy hitter" here in Syracuse. Thank you so much Mr. Azria, you saved my commercial license from any points, and your fee was more than reasonable.

Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness

I was stopped by a NY state trooper for speeding on my way back to Canada right before the border crossing on I-81 in Mar. 2020. (Please be mindful about the signs of reducing speed. I didn't slow down quick enough). It was the first time I was stopped by a cop and I had no idea what I should do about this ticket. I searched on Google and decided to contact Mr. Azria. He was very nice to talk to and clarified all the questions I had regarding the ticket. In the end I did the online traffic safety training by Jefferson County. Mr. Azria helped me organize my correspondence with the DA and the court all the way through. I was quite fortunate to find him to fight the ticket for me. He and his assistant was very professional and knowledgeable. My charge was reduced to "failed to signal" and 2 points deduction. I appreciate the advice and help from Mr. Azria.

I had an excellent experience with this law firm. Mr Bruffett brought down my charges significantly and now I have zero points. He was always available if I had questions. They are a very organized and efficient group of professionals. I am very pleased with the outcome and I highly recommend them for traffic violations.
