Running A Stop Sign in Georgia

Each year, a countless number of individuals in the state of Georgia are charged with running stop signs. Many individuals charged with running a stop sign decide to retain legal representation to respond to the charges, which can be particularly complex.

Motor vehicle drivers must remember to always fully stop at an intersection with a stop sign merely than slow down. Due to the lack of available evidence in many cases, stop sign violations frequently revolve around one individual’s opinion measured against the opinion of law enforcement.

In a large number of cases where a motor vehicle driver ran a stop sign, it is a good idea to fight the citation because the cost of pleading guilty is likely more expensive than fighting the violation. The prosecution will be required to present sufficient evidence to a court of law to demonstrate that the individual ran the stop sign.
