This is how you stop at a stop sign: stop smoothly; stop before the stop line, if there's one; if there's no stop line, stop before entering the crosswalk; if there's no crosswalk, stop before entering the intersection. Pedestrians have right-of-way at stop signs, meaning they have the right to cross the street before motorized vehicles. You have to stop, even on a right turn, going straight or turning left. Do use a turn signal at stop signs, so other drivers know what you're going to do.

If it's a four-way or multi-way stop, and two or more drivers somehow stop at the same time, the driver on the right (counterclockwise) goes first. If you're facing each other and stop at the same time, straight or right-turning traffic trumps left-turning traffic. If you do stop first, go; don't just sit there and look. This causes drivers to creep, then stop.

Just because no one's around, doesn't mean you can roll through the stop sign. I've done this before and have gotten two tickets because of it. That's why I always stop now. I do a "stop and go," not a "stop and pray." Stop and go means you stop, with the car ceasing movement, and then go. Stop and pray means you stop, sit and sit and sit.

Thanks for reading and watching.

Be well!
