Philadelphia Lawyer for Rolling Stop Ticket
We've all been in the situation where we approach a stop sign, slow down, and see that there are no other cars approaching the intersection. While it is always our intention to stop the car and make sure we follow the law, we end up just slowing down enough to roll through the stop sign and keep going. It may seem harmless. You may feel as if you are being safe by slowing down. But in the eyes of the law, your actions are the same as someone who drives right though a stop sign at full speed.
Everyday law enforcement is cracking down on individuals who engage in "rolling stops". A rolling stop is an instance where a vehicle driver slows down but does not come to a complete stop at a stop sign. Police officers treat rolling stops the same way they treat any other stop sign violation. If they see you slowing down but failing to come to a complete stop, they will pull you over and you will be issued a citation.
In Pennsylvania, a rolling stop violation carries three points and can seriously impact your driver's license and insurance premiums. That is why if you are issued a citation due to a rolling stop you should call an experienced Traffic Court Attorney right away.
