Sc Stop Sign Laws

If you have been accused of disobeying a stop sign or disobeying a traffic control device or traffic light in North Myrtle Beach, Myrtle Beach, Conway, Surfside Beach or any part of Horry or Georgetown in South Carolina, The Chambers Law Firm may represent your interest in rejecting or reducing fees. Violating these types of traffic laws can result in points being awarded against your licence and increasing your insurance rates. South Carolina Code § 56-5-2330: Stop signs and right-of-way signs (a) The right-of-way may be indicated by stop signs or right-of-way signs approved by the Department of Transportation or local authorities. (b) every driver of a vehicle approaching a stop sign must, before entering the pedestrian crossing situated on the side close to the intersection or, failing that, before entering the pedestrian crossing situated on the side close to the intersection or, failing that, at the nearest point of the intersecting carriageway: where the driver can look at the approaching traffic in the lane that intersects before entering. After stopping, the driver must yield the right of way to any vehicle at the intersection or approach to another roadway so that it presents an immediate danger while travelling over or within the intersection or intersection of the roadways. (c) the driver of a vehicle approaching a right-of-way sign shall, in accordance with that sign, brake at a speed appropriate to the given conditions and, if necessary to stop safety, stop at a clearly marked stop line, but if this is not the case, before entering the pedestrian crossing on the side of the intersection; or If not, at the nearest point on the intersecting carriageway, so that the driver can see the approaching traffic on the crossing road before entering. After braking or stopping, the driver must approach a vehicle at the intersection or approach to another roadway in such a way that it presents an imminent danger while moving over or within the intersection or intersection of carriageways. Where such a driver is involved in a collision with a vehicle at the intersection or intersection of roadways after crossing a right-of-way sign without stopping, the collision is considered prima facie evidence that he did not yield. The most important thing to do when you are stopped for violating a traffic control device is to remain calm and be polite to the officer. Officials remember which drivers gave them a hard time, and it is more difficult for us to reject or reduce your ticket if the officer has had an unpleasant experience. If you`ve been distracted or haven`t seen a “stop” or “give it away” sign, don`t pay the fine without speaking to an experienced South Carolina traffic attorney.

Stop signs, revenue signs, and other traffic control devices are maintained by the county or city responsible for regulating traffic in the area. Respecting these signs is the basis of traffic safety, so police officers are highly motivated to maintain their validity and punish any driver who does not respect them. A stop line is a type of marking used to inform drivers of where to stop at an intersection or roundabout controlled by a stop sign or traffic light.

It is also known as Stoppbar. [2] South Carolina Code § 56-5-2740.
