Stop Sign, Stop Light and Red Light Tickets

In North Carolina, running through a red light or a stop sign can result in points on your driver’s license and increased insurance premiums.

By consulting Greenville traffic lawyer Timothy E. Burch immediately regarding your red light or stop sign ticket, you have the chance of contesting your ticket and avoiding points on your driver’s license and insurance record. Mr. Burch is an experienced attorney who has been practicing law in North Carolina for many years.

Red Light Violations in North Carolina

In North Carolina, running through a red light is a moving violation and, under the Division of Motor Vehicles, counts as 3 points on your license. If you accumulate 7 points, you are required to attend a Driver Improvement Clinic, which costs $50. If you accumulate 12 points within 3 years, you face possible license suspension for 60 days, or 6 months if it is your second suspension and 12 months if it is your third suspension. Running through a stop sign carries the same penalties, and both offenses will count as one point on your insurance, increasing your policy premium by 25%.

Your lawyer can contest your ticket and may be able to help you avoid points on your license. Even if you think you are guilty of running through a stop sign or stop light, your lawyer can still contest your ticket. Particularly if you have previous points from other offenses, this is important to avoid further penalties.
