A friend got a ticket for not coming to a complete stop at a stop sign for long enough. The ticket references HTA section 85. The vehicle did come to a complete stop.

Section 85 of the HTA says every person shall obey instructions conveyed by a traffic control device. I looked through the HTA and couldn't find any regulation referencing a specific time you are required to stop for at a stop sign. Anyone come across a reference in the HTA that would make this ticket valid?

          Not three seconds, but a FULL stop. Most people will slow to almost stop, and roll through....

            @omaid . Saw the same cop on way out shopping, was still there 20 min later and after I STOPPED fully, maybe 1-2 seconds, he pulled over a dodge ram truck that floated through :lol: . Just stop moving. One of my pet peeves.

              That is a long used myth in driver ed. If everyone stops for an extra 3 seconds at every stop sign the cumulative waste of time and fuel would be staggering. Don't do it!

                    Thanks for this! I believe this and the HTA will be enough to get her off of the ticket.
