Receive a Ticket For Running Through a Stop Sign in Florida?

In Florida, one of the most common offenses taking place today on our roads are Stop Sign Violations, which is included as a Controlled Traffic Device. Stop sign laws state that to avoid a ticket for running a stop sign, you must bring your vehicle to a complete stop, wait for a full two seconds and make the motion to look both ways. However, many drivers end up treating these stop signs like they are ‘yield’, ‘pause’ or ‘hesitation’ signs.

Penalty For Running a Stop Sign

Getting a stop sign ticket in Florida can be costly and most of the time they are a complete annoyance. The fine for stop sign violations can be anywhere from $50.00 to $200.00. If you happen to have been in violation within a construction zone or school zone, the fine could possibly be doubled.

You can also receive up to 2 points against your license for running a stop sign. This can put your license at risk and you need to find a good attorney to get some advice on how to respond. Your car insurance can also be affected as well.

That is why consulting with a good lawyer is the right move to make when you receive a traffic violation that had additional unpleasant consequences. Failing to come to a complete stop at a stop sign puts pedestrians at risk and is taken very seriously by law enforcement in Florida.
