Do you come to a COMPLETE stop at a stop sign?

I come to a complete stop. Not because of the first gear but rather following rules and if there's a cop hiding and sees me doing a rolling stop then I will get caught.

So what if others honk behind you lol. Just ignore them. The world is not fair and has drivers who are impatient/don't follow the rules.

PS I do count three seconds quickly though lol.

I admit, the majority of the time I do not. I come close coming to a complete stop, but not always. I would say about 85% of the time I do not.

Yes. It's funny because just a few days ago I saw an idiot in front of me just slow down at a stop sign, without stopping, and get ticketed by police cruiser waiting just off to the side. It's a very simple rule and not following it is simply laziness.

Only if another car is there too or nearby, otherwise I slow down a bit but dont stop. Cause to me, its a complete wasted effort and extra wear on your brakes and trans to come to a complete stop if no one is even in sight. Like why bother? Do we knock on bathroom doors that are open and clearly no one is inside using it? No, so why should i bother stopping if no one is in sight.

For instance theres a stop sign 2 blocks from my house that really should never have been there for the past 2 years as all it is, is a L turn, not even a 3 way. And if someone crosses it, the gap is so huge anyone can see it from 100ft away. I never stop at it, ever, I just roll right through. If I see cops nearby i will but 2 years now and never once seen one.

I always come to a full stop. It really bugs me when I see people roll through or simply slow down at a stop. Could be cluelessness or laziness, who knows...

I have a 16 year old who just got his drivers license and he would be the first one to say if his parents' driving wasn't up to snuff. It's better to have good driving habits so that it comes naturally to you, rather than to have to force yourself to obey the rules only when you risk getting a ticket.

Can you make a valid excuse in court if the police officer says "you didn't stop", meanwhile, you record your speedometer as it reads/needle hits 0? Lol.

I try to at least everytime - if I'm in a rush sometimes not :P

Too many stop signs that should be yield signs.
If you drive dangerously I hope you get caught and lose your license/car/dignity! :twisted: :twisted:

Reminds me of my first week after getting the a speed trap ticket.

Just got a ticket after I got my license from a speed trap that was at the top of a hill. Thing is, it was a down hill followed by a gradual uphill so most cars would go over the speed limit by a bit. I think I was going 9km/h over. Cop said if I wanted to fight it, I could or did he say should? anyway, the ticket mysteriously got expunged from the records after 13 months. Haha.
