Details Concerning Your Washington State Stop Sign Traffic Ticket
It is important to understand the law when it comes to your Washington stop sign traffic ticket. There is often much confusion regarding this particular type of WA traffic ticket, so if you hope to beat it is essential to know the facts.
Officers often like to sit just off of a stop sign intersection and observe vehicles traveling by. They are not only looking for people who blow through the stop sign but also people who did not come to a full and complete stop. Rolling stops, aka “California stops” do not fly in Washington State. Washington stop sign traffic law states that you must come to a complete stop.



However, the law does not say you must stop at the stop sign. Instead, just like with red lights, you must first stop at the “stop line” which is the big white bar painted at some intersections. If there is not a stop line, then you must stop at the edge of the crosswalk furthest away from the intersection, so as not to block the path of pedestrians. If there is not a stop line or a painted cross walk, then you must stop at the point nearest the intersection roadway where you have a view of approaching traffic on the intersecting roadway.
So if you drove past the stop line but then came to a complete stop and the sign, you could possibly get a Washington ticket. Furthermore, once you stop, you must yield the right-of-way to any vehicle in the intersection or approaching on another road so closely as to constitute an immediate hazard.
The bottom line is - simply because you stop doesn’t mean you can then dart into traffic.
A Washington red light traffic ticket might not seem like a big deal, but the reality is that a conviction will most often result in expensive fines, higher insurance rates, and if you have points against your driving record could lead to a license suspension.
