If you’ve done what many Californian’s have a “rolled through the stop sign” and were stopped by a police officer you were probably cited under California Vehicle Code 21450.
California Defines a Stop under California Vehicle Code 22450.
(a) The driver of any vehicle approaching a stop sign at the entrance to, or within, an intersection shall stop at a limit line, if marked, otherwise before entering the crosswalk on the near side of the intersection. If there is no limit line or crosswalk, the driver shall stop at the entrance to the intersecting roadway.
(b) The driver of a vehicle approaching a stop sign at a railroad grade crossing shall stop at a limit line, if marked, otherwise before crossing the first track or entrance to the railroad grade crossing.
(c) Notwithstanding any other provision of law, a local authority may adopt rules and regulations by ordinance or resolution providing for the placement of a stop sign at any location on a highway under its jurisdiction where the stop sign would enhance traffic safety.
A stop sign violation of a “California rolling stop” can become very expensive, averaging $250. More importantly, this violation may result in a point on your driving records, which can increase your insurance premiums.
