Can running a stop sign get you a ticket? Most of the time the answer is yes. Former ‘Family Matters’ star learned that the hard way. Darius McCrary allegedly ran a stop sign causing the authorities to impound his Jaguar, according to a report from TMZ.
Our firm’s San Diego auto accident attorneys have put running a stop sign on our list of the top causes of car accidents because going through an intersection and ignoring the cross-flow of traffic puts the odds in favor of personal injury.
Darius McCrary, ‘Family Matters’ star, loses Jaguar after allegedly running a stop sign.
The Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) allegedly witnessed McCrary run through a stop sign when they pulled him over. Upon inspection, officers saw that the actor was driving around town with an expired driver’s license.
McCrary was ticketed for having an out-of-date license and the authorities decided that for good measure it was best to impound the star’s Jaguar. The only problem? McCrary was on his way to work when the infraction took place, but the police were nice enough to call him a cab, according to a rep for the actor.
Running a stop sign is a dangerous maneuver when you are behind the wheel, but luckily no cars or pedestrian accidents resulted from McCrary’s actions. Our San Diego auto accident attorneys hope that this story goes to show that you can be rich and famous, but when you put other’s lives at risk on the road, you will get punished by the law one way or another.
If you see a sign that says stop, make sure you come to a complete halt, look both ways, and then proceed safely through the intersection or down the road. Because if a car accident does happen, there is no Waldo Geraldo Faldo to blame, just the person who ran the stop sign.
