Traffic Violations

New York Stop Sign Violation Lawyer

Like most cities, New York uses traffic signals, stop signs and yield signs to control the flow of traffic through intersections and along streets. In order to protect drivers from blind corners or views obstructed by parked cars, foliage or buildings, the careful placement of stop signs is crucial. For this reason, stop sign violations carry stiff penalties such as fines, points added to your license, jail time or loss of driving privileges.
