Failure to Obey Traffic Control Device in Tacoma

traffic violationA traffic control device can be virtually anything on the roadway. For example, you can be cited for violating this statute if you did not conform to a traffic sign or markings on the street. Technically, this statute could be used for just about all situations, i.e. speeding (violated the speed limit sign), failure to stop (violated the stop sign), ran a red light (violated the red light), etc. However, in reality, a failure to obey control device ticket is issued as a catch all statute. It is used when there is not a specific more applicable statute, i.e. the speeding statute, the red light statute, the stop sign statute.

Unfortunately, normally these types of tickets are more difficult to beat because they are so easy for a prosecutor to prove. All they have to show is the sign said you cannot do X but the officer saw you doing X. Not especially complicated.

Even though these are difficult tickets, there are still quite a few tricks that an experienced traffic attorney knows which can help you to keep this ticket off of your record. Don’t give up without trying fighting for your record.

    Mr. Newcombe is an amazing lawyer. My DUI case seemed hopeless. But, he was relentless and just kept fighting and fighting. Right when all hope had seemed lost, we brainstormed and came to a conclusion that helped my case tremendously! I couldnt be happier with choosing Jason as my attorney.

    Jason has successfully contested and won 3 of my family's traffic tickets. His customer service is incredible and he even called me personally to tell me the outcome of the judge's decision. I would highly recommend Jason Newcombe to anyone in need of an attorney.

    Mr. Newcombe is a fantastic lawyer. When I first called his offices, I didn't know where to turn. I was facing a crazy criminal charge, and he ended up getting it completely dismissed. I cannot thank him and his staff enough. They will fight, not just roll over and try to get you to take a deal. I highly recommend him!

    From start to finish with the DUI process Jason Newcombe's office has been more than helpful, friendly, honest and respectful.From the beginning, Jason was on our side and fighting our battle with us. He flat out laid out our options honestly and gave us his opinion on which was the best way to go, but never made the decision for us. Jason is very professional yet personable. We are completely satisfied with our end result. Couldn't ask for a better lawyer to be on your side.

    I cannot thank Mr. Newcombe and his staff enough. They are awesome. When I first contacted his offices, I didn't know what to do. I was overwhelmed and confused. He did an amazing job, I highly recommend him! I had two cases, and he got both of them dismissed. If you are in trouble, do yourself a favor, give him a call.
