If you’ve received a traffic ticket for disobeying a traffic control device, you’re not alone. Traffic device violations are worth 2 points and are considered the most ticketed offenses all over New York.
What is it?
The law defines disobeying a traffic control device as violating any sign, marking, or device (placed by authority) that regulates, warns and guides traffic. This means that disobeying any marking on the pavement and any traffic signs (such as a STOP or YIELD) are considered a “traffic device” offense. The fine for disobeying a traffic control device starts at $138 in New York City.
