Stop Sign Violation Traffic Ticket

Physical Control ViolationEveryone knows that when you come to a stop sign that you are supposed to stop. Unfortunately, not everyone knows what it means to “stop.” We are talking about a full and complete stop. A “California Roll” does not count.

Furthermore, you need to stop at the proper location. There are is a specific location that you must stop depending on the configuration of the intersection. If there is a stop line (the single big white line that crosses the lane) then you are supposed to stop at it – meaning, the front of your car is not to go beyond it.

If there is no stop line but there is a marked cross walk, then you are required to stop with your front of the car behind the front edge of the crosswalk. If there is neither a crosswalk nor a stop line, then you must come to a complete stop as soon as you have a clear vantage point of traffic approaching and crossing the intersection.

The key point that needs to be made is you do not stop literally at the stop sign. Instead, you stop at the sign’s stop line, cross walk, or the nearest point for a clear view of traffic.

Client Reviews
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 an amazing lawyer. My DUI case seemed hopeless. But, he was relentless and just kept fighting and fighting. Right when all hope had seemed lost, we brainstormed and came to a conclusion that helped my case tremendously! I couldnt be happier with choosing Jason as my attorney.
Jason has successfully contested and won 3 of my family's traffic tickets. His customer service is incredible and he even called me personally to tell me the outcome of the judge's decision. I would highly recommend Jason Newcombe to anyone in need of an attorney.
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!
