One moment, you’re crossing an intersection, and you missed the stop sign as you passed. The next minute, a police officer pulls up behind you and issues you a stop sign ticket.
That can be frustrating, and it can turn expensive fast. That’s why you may need a lawyer from the Law Office of James Medows to help you fight your ticket. Your Nassau County stop sign ticket lawyer can help you seek evidence avoid the long-term penalties of a citation.
If you’ve been stopped by a police officer for running a stop sign in Nassau County, you may be worried about the penalties you could face if you agree to the ticket and accept the fines. The costs can be high.
If you accept a ticket and decide to pay, you’re facing more than just a fine. You’re also facing the impact to your insurance premiums, which could be too much for you to afford. You may have to accept worse coverage at a higher price.
You could also see penalties against your drivers license. Every traffic ticket is worth a certain number of points, and if you have enough points, your license could be suspended.
If you’ve been accused of breaking a stop sign law, you may have grounds to fight back. Every case is different, but the general argument is that you didn’t stop for a stop sign. Sometimes, though, you may have a reason for running a stop sign.
For example, you may have been physically unable to stop. Your brakes failed, and you may have only been able to stop the car down the road. However, the officer may have ticketed you despite the mechanical malfunction.
In most cases, it’s a matter of how visible the sign is, though. Stop signs are easily covered by hanging tree limbs, tall bushes, and other obstructions. In some cases, they may have even been vandalized, stolen, or they have blown away in a storm.
In these cases, the stop sign was missing or impossible to see. Fortunately, your lawyer can help you determine your best options for a defense, as well as the evidence you need for that defense.
