running a stop sign

if you run a stop sign, do they put a point on your license in cali?

well if you get caught, they should give you a fine, and take a point off, if you hit someone because you ran it, maybe more then one. good luck with that

They can revoke your license, I believe. It's considered wreckless driving.

It depends what they write you up for. If you nearly hit someone, or if there were other cars around... I bet it would be reckless driving. If it was just a rolling stop in the middle of the night, I bet they'd warn you or give you a lesser violation.

At any rate, ANY moving violation in CA is a point on your record.

this is how it is in socal. if you dont completely stop, a cop has the right to give you a ticket. it will cost you well over 150$.
and yes, he has the right to give you a ticket if you roll even 1mph . they want you to COMPLETELY STOP. but yea, hes a jerk if he pulls you over but it wouldnt be too odd to get pulled over for something like that here in my town

Didn't California just pass a law, allowing medical personel to speed when traveling to an emergency in their personal vehicles? wink grin

^^^true that thumbsup

my driving instructo told me that a complete stop is when you slighty jerk forward when stopping. esp. in the eyes of the cops. thumbsup

I have no patience... even though I know you're right. spineyes

I usually run 4-ways when I can see there is nobody (including cops) around. I also run red left turn arrows when it's clear, because they are TOTALLY illogical and have no use.

LOL my car doesn't noticeably jerk forward anymore since I lowered it with Eibach Sporlines and stiffer KYB AGX shocks. grin
Of course I always stop my wheels from spinning at a stop sign, but more importantly I always look for cops lurking in the shadows. It pays to be paranoid. thumbsup

if this is your first ticket for running a stop sign and your record is clean then all you would have to do is pay a fine thats all... Not big deal...
