Failing to Stop
As a motorist, you are required to obey all signs and traffic regulation devices. Failing to stop, either at a red light, a stop sign, or a different traffic control device can result in loss of demerit points and a fine. The most common occurrence is failing to stop at a stop sign. Even if you believe the way is clear, you must come to a complete stop before the stop sign. Failure to do so, or rolling through a stop sign, will result in this charge if you are caught. Failing to stop at a red light has more negative consequences, as insurance companies view this more seriously and will increase your premiums accordingly. Failing to stop will stay on your driver’s abstract for 3 years.
