Stop Signs - Myths vs Facts



Stop signs

MYTHS

   -   If the person in front stopped, I don’t need to worry about it

   -   They are basically a give way sign

   -   I only need to stop 3 seconds then go

 

FACTS

   -   If the person in front of you stops you also need to stop when you are at the front

   -   If it were meant to be a Give Way sign it would be. Stop means stop.

   -   You must stop long enough to check both ways and ensure that there are no oncoming cars

 

Stops signs are important and stopping before proceeding is the law.  If you don’t stop and give yourself the time to check the oncoming traffic then you can put yourself and other drivers in danger.
