Penalties For Running A Stop Sign
Stop signs are positioned at crossings and intersections, requiring drivers to come to a complete stop at the “limit line.” The maximum fine for running a stop sign is around $200 in Texas, depending on the county.
To be found guilty of this offense, the following elements must be satisfied:
- A motorist must drive a vehicle and approach a stop sign.
- The stop sign needs to be at the entrance, or within an intersection or railroad crossing.
- The motorist must fail to come to a full stop.
