Failure to Obey Traffic Device Ticket

racingThe title of this type of ticket is pretty straight forward. Essentially, it means you did not follow the instructions of a sign. Technically, this statute could be used for pretty much any type of sign, such as a speed limit sign or a stop sign, but in reality, it is used as a catch all when there is not a more specific applicable statute.

There is a specific stop sign statute. So, most officers will issue a stop sign ticket as opposed to a failure to obey traffic control device ticket when stop signs are in question.

Common examples of failure to obey traffic control device tickets include, disobeying a turns prohibited sign, using a lane which is restricted at certain times, disobeying a sign restricting lane changes, etc.

Typically, these types of cases are easier for the prosecutor to prove because they are pretty matter of fact. The sign told you not to do that but you did it anyways. The end.

I cannot thank Mr. Newcombe and his staff enough. They are awesome. When I first contacted his offices, I didn't know what to do. I was overwhelmed and confused. He did an amazing job, I highly recommend him! I had two cases, and he got both of them dismissed. If you are in trouble, do yourself a favor, give him a call.

Mr. Newcombe is a fantastic lawyer. When I first called his offices, I didn't know where to turn. I was facing a crazy criminal charge, and he ended up getting it completely dismissed. I cannot thank him and his staff enough. They will fight, not just roll over and try to get you to take a deal. I highly recommend him!
