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 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.

I recommend this law firm as they are very knowledgeable and professional dealing with the NY speeding traffic ticket I had been charged with. I am very pleased with the negotiations this firm had negotiated on behalf of me. Thank you!

Speeding and registration violation

My experience was very professional and satisfactory. I was able to pay the attorney s fee up front. My attorney worked with the court and I paid a fine for a lowered charge in relationship to my registration. I did not receive points on my license for the speeding

Awesome job

I received a ticket for speeding in Warrensburg, NY for going 20mph above the speed limit - a 4 point and >$200 offense. Mr. Bruffett took the case and had the ticket reduced to a 0 point $150 offense. Great result. I highly recommend his services.
