failure to comply with road signs

Those facing allegations of failing to comply with road signs could be charged with disqualification, three penalty points and a fine of up to £1000.

road sign violations

Failure to comply with a road traffic sign can, on conviction, result in a fine of up to £1000. Where the sign in question is a ‘Stop’ or ‘No Entry’ sign, then it is possible that penalty points could also be imposed and it can escalate into a prosecution for a more serious offence such as careless or dangerous driving. Road sign offences include not complying with signs, road markings, railway level crossings and traffic lights. The legislation surrounding this type of offence can be complex, which is why it’s important to contact a solicitor who can examine the legality of the signs and your behaviour.

Although you might see the violation as minor it could have severe consequences for drivers facing disqualification under the ‘totting-up’ process. So if you are in this position, please contact us as soon as possible for help.
