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).

Azria & Bruffett provided excellent representation for my 89-year old father who was charged with two tickets in Cortland, NY. For a very affordable fee, they were able to obtain dismissal of the moving violation resulting in a very small fine and court costs. I live in another state so this was especially convenient for me to help my dad and they saved me a lot of time. We spoke with an attorney and a paralegal guided my dad and I through the remainder of the process. The firm responded to all of my questions promptly. Highly recommended.

The Azira & Bruffett Law Firm was extremely halpful and successful in removing my traffic ticket

Exceeded every expectation!!!!

I hired Azria and Bruffet to help with a hefty speeding ticket I received in Cortlandville NY. I'll admit I was hesitant as it was my first time hiring someone to handle a ticket for me but I was at risk of losing my license and paying thousands in fines. I was shocked to find they greatly exceeded expectations, taking my 4+ point ticket down to a 0 point violation with miniscule fines. Also the process was simple and fast, I sent them my information and was required to do nothing else from the start to the closure of my case. I cannot thank them enough and would/do recommend them to anyone in need of help with a ticket!
