Disregarded Traffic Control Device Fines, Traffic Points And Defense

There are several different types of incidents that can be considered as falling into the disregarded traffic control device category and cause issuance of traffic violation tickets.

There are different laws within each municipality or city that may or may not define the avoiding a traffic control device, so it is important to know if specific laws are on the books or not. Turning right at a stop sign without completely coming to a stop can also be classed under this type of ticket as can making an illegal U-turn or turning left when marked no turn.

Fines And Penalties

Depending on the area in which the traffic ticket was issued, there can be different levels of traffic ticket fines or possible points.
