Question: What is the proper way to stop at a stop sign? Some intersections have painted lines at the stop sign, but many smaller intersections in residential areas do not, so where is the appropriate place to stop?

Answer: State law outlines the following three methods for making a proper stop at a stop sign, depending on the type of intersection you are at.

? If there is a clearly marked stop line painted on the roadway, the operator shall stop the vehicle immediately before crossing such line.

? If there is no clearly marked stop line, the operator shall stop the vehicle immediately before entering the crosswalk on the near side of the intersection (this applies whether the crosswalk is marked or unmarked).

? Finally, if there is neither a clearly marked stop line nor a marked or unmarked crosswalk at the intersection, the operator shall, before entering the intersection, stop the vehicle at such point that will enable them to efficiently observe the traffic on the intersecting roadway.

The statute governing this topic is 346.46(2).
