What is Disregard of Traffic Control Devices?

Drivers who roll through a stop sign, or run a red light are often cited with “disregarding a traffic control device” by a ticketing officer. It can also include cutting through a parking lot to avoid intersections, turning right without making a complete stop, and making an illegal U-turn. Ignoring a traffic sign or signal is more than a common moving violation, however. It is a serious national safety issue.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration estimates that red light runners injure 165,000 people each year. There are approximately 2.3 million intersection crashes recorded annually. The result is significant personal injury and nearly 8,000 fatalities, 10 percent of which are caused by purposefully or negligently running a red light.

What Qualifies as a Traffic Control Device?

Texas state transportation code defines which traffic signs, signals, and markings drivers must obey:

  • Red, yellow, and green traffic lights
  • Flashing red or yellow lights at crosswalks and intersecting roadways
  • Lane Direction Control Signals, such as red or green lights placed over individual lanes of a highway
  • Green turn arrows
  • “No U-Turn” signs
  • “No right turn on red” signs
  • Stop signs
  • Yield signs
  • School Zone speed limit signs
  • Lane Use Signs, such as “left lane for passing only”
  • Changeable Message Signs, such as electronic marquees warning of road work ahead.

Who is to Blame for Disregarding Traffic Control Devices?

Traffic signals and road signs are there to warn drivers of when to stop or slow down, protecting them from collisions. Licensed drivers who ignore the signs clearly know the rules and choose to break them. Disregard of traffic control devices is disregard for the safety of others, and can be categorized as reckless driving. Yet there are other times when a traffic sign is battered, faded, blocked by trees, or has been tampered with. Traffic lights sometimes break, and cities can be slow to respond. This amounts to negligence on the part of the municipality and is an equally heinous offense.
