Hehe, a few years ago dh and I were driving and there was 4-way intersection with stop signs that said "Stop All Way" and I'm like "Well duh, of course you have to stop all the way; its a STOP sign" Dh calmly informed me that the sign meant all 4 ways have a stop sign...and he's never let me forget it!

LOL!!!

If there are other cars around whether they are in my direction or not I stop. If no one or no car is in sight, I roll.

ETA: my rolling is about 5mph though, I'm not going through it like I'm taking a slow turn

calaborate and listen. . Ice is back with my brand new invention. Something grabs a hold of you nicely flows like a harpoon daily and nightly will it ever stop, yo I dont know turn off the lights and I'm glowin. . . . . .. . .

DARN YOU!!!! That song is in my head now! (who else thought of that song with this post? please dont tell me I'm a TOTAL freak!)


Ok, that dates me. LOL Sorry, If I was born 10 yrs sooner I would have said "In the name of love" lol

Ok, its getting late, so I should go to bed.

to the OP, depends on where I am. If its a fairly popular intersection, even if nobody is around I'll stop completly. If I'm out in the middle of nowhere, cause there are lots of places like that here. CORNFIELDS! lol I'll just do a rolling stop, of if I'm in my subdivision, SOMETIMES I will.

BUAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!! LOL!!!

Actually, I almost started posting the "in the name of love"... LOL!!!

I agree. We have a lot of country out here and that is where I mainly roll through. You can see from a mile either way...so I guess if I get hit...I deserve it for being blind as a bat to not see that far away and I shouldn't be driving in the first place...LOL

We must be the same age!!!



I almost always come to a complete stop, unless the stop sign is in a parking lot or something.

I'm in CA, stop sign really means "yield" here.

Anyone remember the movie Clueless. "I totally paused." Yep, that's me....

I completely stop and look carefully. We drive a 15-passenger which isn't exactly known for its agility at avoiding collision should I not notice somebody coming.

I stop all the way 99% of the time. There are times where I can see and nbody is coming and its a quiet intersection [like in our neighborhood].

I stop most of the time, but I'm guilty of rolling through some neighborhood ones at 6am when I have a clear view in all directions.

I stop. My friend doesn't. I tease her about it, she calls it a California Stop.

I stop. I got pulled over once for rolling through.
Funny story, one day my dh and I were driving some where and I stopped at a stop sign an was just sitting there talking to him. About 3 minutes pass, and he asks me what I'm waiting for. I calmly inform him im waiting for it to turn green. He just looked at me and hes like, It's a stop sign. And there were like 3 cars beind me, no one bothered to honk or anything. Yeah I haven't lived that one down.
