We want to protect all Kansas and Missouri motorists and we know from experience that the best way to protect you from serious injury in an accident is to try and prevent that accident from happening. The best way we can do that is to help you become a more informed motorist and that begins with understanding the rules of the road, including the simple things like stop sign etiquette.
Common Rules at a Stop Sign:
- Always come to a COMPLETE STOP and look all ways before proceeding.
- At a 3-way or a 4-way stop sign intersection general rule of the right-of-way is the first car to stop is the first car to proceed through
- When more than one vehicle stops at about the same time, the rule is that the car on the left should allow the right-of-way to the vehicle to their far right.
It can be easy to ignore a stop sign. Most times you come to one and you may be the only car at the intersection, so why stop, right? Well, if one person is breaking the law, it can lead to a trickle down effect and if one does, why can't everyone. Stop signs are used to control traffic flow. Pedestrians and bicyclists rely on you as a motorist to be following the rules of the road. They're always going to assume you're going to stop. No one can predict your actions as a driver any better than you can predict theirs.
Let's all do our part to keep the roads in Kansas City safe. When you drive, avoid distracted driving and use safe and attentive driving techniques.
