Safe Driving Tips
Under the Law at a stop sign you MUST: 1. Come to a full stop. (No movement of wheels) 2. Yield the right of way to Vehicles and Pedestrians in or APPROACHING the intersection. A young driver slowed down and rolled through the intersection with a STOP sign as a police officer watched diligently from around the corner. When the police officer stopped the motorist up the block and told him about the STOP sign violation, the driver offered this defense: "What is the problem officer, I slowed down?" The officer quickly retorted with a question: "If I were hitting you on the head with my nightstick, which of these two things would you rather I do- Slow down or STOP?" Point made! Most people KNOW that they have to stop at a stop sign. VERY few know that their legal obligation is to also YIELD the right of way to pedestrians and vehicles already in AND approaching the intersection.
The point reduction benefit actually saved my license from being suspended. A suspended license would have created havoc in my life.
