Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
Unfortunately, just because your copy of the citation is not able to be read or is hard to read, as long as the copy submitted to court is legible the citation is still valid. You need to go to court and plead not guilty and get a meeting with the prosecutor who will usually negotiate to dismiss one citation in exchange for you paying the other. Arguing the stop sign is new does not help much, because drivers are supposed to pay attention to all signs, but the prosecutor has discretion to reduce it to failure to obey signs, which is a no point violation or can dismiss that one and let you pay the seatbelt fine.

What are the fines for both?

Thank you for your reply.

For a stop sign the fine is $100 plus court costs of about another $100, plus 3 points on your license.

For a seat belt violation, the fine is $50 plus court costs of about $75 and no points.
