Running a Stop Sign Reduced to Failure to Pay Full Time and Attention in the Town of Vienna

September 2023

Client was stopped for going through a stop sign in the Town of Vienna.  They were having trouble with their brakes and had to make a decision whether to try to stop or go through the stop sign.  The Vienna Town Police Officer wrote a summons for failure to yield to a stop sign.  

Our client resided in the District of Columbia and had a clean driving record.  We discussed getting the brakes fixed to show the Court and they took a driver improvement course for extra mitigation.  The Vienna Town Attorney agreed to reduce to the stop sign charge to failure to pay full time and attention with a fine.  This reduced charge will not appear on the driving record as it is a non-reportable offense so it does not affect DMV points or insurance.  Many traffic tickets in Vienna are trivial and can be prepaid.  But it's important to note that prepayment is a guilty plea to the charge and a traffic attorney that regularly appears in that Court can really make a difference.

Practice area(s): Speeding / Traffic Ticket
