There are several mistakes a driver can make at a stop sign. The most common tickets issued are either for not stopping at all or failing to stop completely (a rolling stop). There is no specific amount of time that one must be at a complete stop as long as you do completely come to a halt. Sometimes we see tickets that were issued improperly because the officer decided your stop was not "long enough". As long as you did stop completely, however briefly, your ticket can usually be dismissed.
Because a stop sign violation ticket will have both a fine and add three (3) points to your driving record, before you just pay the fine and admit you were guilty, you need to know what you can do. It is possible to modify or eliminate your ticket completely. To find out how, contact a Tampa traffic offenses attorney at the offices of Taracks & Associates. We will discuss the details of your citation with you and determine what steps you should take to dismiss your ticket.
