Deadly Consequence for Missed Stop Sign – Traffic ticket


TSA: s.115(2)(b) – Careless Driving; RORR: s.37(a) – Fail to Stop


My client drove his tractor-trailer through an intersection after missing a stop sign.  The driver of a car died on impact when she struck the side of his trailer.


This was an extremely unfortunate and tragic accident, which caused numerous lives to be negatively altered forever.  My client was especially devastated and will never forgive himself. I resolved the matter with a guilty plea to careless driving.  My client paid a fine of $2000, and his license was suspended for 90 days. No criminal record.
