Running a Stop Light or Stop Sign

Did you get a ticket for running a Stop Sign or Stop Light?

Getting convicted of running a red light or stop sign is a moving violation that will result in license points but, more importantly, an increase in your insurance rates over the next three years. If you are assessed twelve license points within a three-year period, you will probably face a license suspension. In most traffic ticket cases, the prosecutor only needs to prove that the you committed the violation, not that you knew about it or that it was intentional; there is no mental state requirement for most traffic tickets.

If you are convicted of running a stop sign or red light you will be assessed three points. As mentioned above, if you receive twelve points during a three-year period you face the risk of a license revocation. Sometimes, running a stop sign or red light can also lead to charge of reckless driving which is four points!
