Stop signs and traffic calming

Stop signs should be used to control traffic flow, not traffic speed. A stop sign tells drivers and pedestrians who has the right of way.

Studies made in many parts of the country show that there is a high incidence of intentional violations where stop signs are installed as "nuisances" or "speed breakers." While speed is reduced in the immediate vicinity of the "nuisance" stop signs, speeds are actually higher between intersections than they would have been if those signs had not been installed.
