Baldwin Traffic Intersection Accident Lawyer
When a driver in Alabama obtains a driver’s license, they are expected to follow all of guidelines outlined in the Alabama Driver Manual. Traveling across the highways and roads of Alabama requires for motorists to not only operate their vehicle in the safest manner possible, but also to adhere to all traffic signals present on the roadways. While all traffic signs and signals are important, traffic lights and stop signs are amongst the most essential. These particular signals help to keep the flow of traffic safe and secure.
Unfortunately, failure to stop at traffic signs has become one of the leading contributors to motor vehicle collisions in Alabama and across the United States. While the majority of drivers are fully aware of the fact that failing to stop at a traffic signal is illegal, many of these motorists choose to simply ignore this signage. The likelihood of traffic intersection accidents occurring increases dramatically when a driver runs a stop sign or red light.

Traffic Fines and Costs in Alabama
The cost of a traffic violation ticket in the state of Alabama varies by the type of violation and the county in which the infraction took place. However, the penalties are likely the same across the state. One of the most common misconceptions lies in the fact that Alabama residents believe that once a traffic ticket is administered, they must only pay for the listed amount of the ticket. Drivers can contact their local Alabama court to find out the specific cost associated with the traffic violation in which they were ticketed for.
In addition to the cost of the ticket, drivers who break the law are subject to a number of supplementary costs. The motorist may have to pay for court costs and other fees associated with a license suspension, if applicable. On top of all of these costs, auto insurance rates are likely to rise after a certain number of infractions are on the driving record. As poor driving habits are recognized, the insurance company is likely to increase the monthly rate, or worse, drop the driver from their insurance altogether.

Failure to Stop at Traffic Signs Penalties
The state of Alabama, much like all 50 states, maintains an “obedience to traffic-control devices” law. In layman’s terms, this applies to running a stop sign or a red light. This specifies that all Alabama motorists are required to adhere to and obey all traffic lights and stop signs at all times when operating a vehicle. Once this traffic infraction is committed, the violator will be given a traffic citation, which may apply points to the driver’s record.
While traffic tickets are certainly a worry for many drivers, Alabama residents must understand that choosing to ignore traffic signs can do far more damage than to one’s bank account. Failure to stop at traffic signs leads to thousands of motor vehicle collisions each and every year in the United States. As more and more motorists enter the roads and highways of Alabama, it becomes even more critical to consistently obey all traffic laws.
Receiving a ticket or a license suspension may be the least of a reckless driver’s worries. Meaning, if an accident were to occur as a result of a negligent driver running a red light, they will be held liable for any following injuries, property damages, medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and any other costs that they accident victims must pay due to the collision. Therefore, Alabama drivers must pay careful attention at all times while operating a motor vehicle. If you or a loved one has been involved in a crash, Citrin Law Firm is here to help.
