Cost of a stop sign ticket (CVC 22450):

Like many other traffic fines in California, the good old stop sign ticket has certainly increased over the years. It’s definitely one of the most common moving violations too. It’s really easy to forget that you have to come to a complete stop, regardless of how quiet the street or how rushed you are at that moment.

 

Nowadays, you’ll see yourself handling an average fine of $234+ when settling the cost of a stop sign ticket. Add to this the point on your driving record and you’ll be paying for increased insurance rates for the next 3-5 years too! This will definitely cost you a couple hundred more than you think in the long-run.

 

So, what’s the deal? Well when it comes to stop sign tickets, it’s possible to build a defense to submit to the court to declare your innocence. At the end of the day, it’s up to the state to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that you violated every element of that specific vehicle code.

 

There are a few circumstantial factors that can create enough reasonable doubt to get a stop sign ticket dismissed. The specific CVC 22450 semantics state:

  • If marked, the driver of any vehicle approaching a stop sign at the entrance to, or within, an intersection shall stop at a limit line.
  • If not marked, the driver of any vehicle approaching a stop sign at the entrance to, or within, an intersection shall stop before entering the crosswalk on the near side of the intersection.
 

As you can see, this would depend highly on the exact location of the issuing officer at the moment of the incident. This and a variety of other factors could provide a good argument for the court. Contesting a stop sign ticket can also be done from the comfort of your PC, laptop or phone instead of wasting time and money to appear personally.
