Stop Sign

Hoping this won't be hard to follow:

Let's say you are stopped at a stop sign behind someone and that someone is pulled up well past that line that you are supposed to stop at so much that the front end of your car is actually at that line.

That someone moves on and it's your turn to stop, but yet you are already stopped at the line.

So do you have to pull forward and stop again or is the stop you made behind that someone (at the line) considered you stopping at the sign?

It would look as though you didn't stop for your turn at the sign, but again, you are already at the line you were supposed to stop at.

  • Back in drivers ed days we were told to stop behind the line, then move up a little, do our left right left & then go if it was clear. Of course that was back when we had the Flintstone mobiles, so the rules may have changed a bit. :p

  • I have had this done to me plenty of times. Sense I am already at the stop line. I do not need to stopp again. So when the person in front of me goes. If I can I go to. Let a police person try to give me a ticket.

  • As long as I have a good visual I don't stop again. I just go. Obviously if there is oncoming traffic, that is a different case, but in the event you have a visual and it is safe to do so, just go.

  • I think a police officer would say stop again.

  • Just take the few minutes and stay stopped no sence getting a ticket for someones elses stupid mistakes. Plus it does not last that long (the stopping I mean)
