You need to stop AT the line, not before it.mbmbkop wrote: ↑Dec 4th, 2017 7:03 pm"136.(1) Every driver or street car operator approaching a stop sign at an intersection,

I wonder how "at a marked line" is usually interpreted. Suppose there is a few car lineup at a 4-way stop intersection. If there is a car in front of me, I'll obviously stop behind it.. but if I then roll through the intersection, I suppose a ticket for failing to stop at a stop sign will be issued. Hence, I wonder if the defense that I did come to a complete stop behind a car in front of me will work. I bet it would work if it wasn't for this "shall stop.. at a marked stop line" line, but it seems that the prosecutor may argue that I did not stop at that line... Still, perhaps this line of defense can work if 1) there is no stop line, or 2) the car in front actually went over the stop line by 1/2 length or something..
