STOP SIGNS: All residents and motorists are reminded about the law concerning stop signs. Stop signs are placed for the safety and prevention of careless accidents for all drivers. The law states as follows:
Duties at Stop Signs. – Except when directed to proceed by a police officer or appropriately attired persons authorized to direct, control or regulate traffic, every driver of a vehicle approaching a stop sign shall stop at a clearly marked stop line or, if no stop line is present, before entering a crosswalk on the near side of the intersection or, if no crosswalk is present, then at the point nearest the intersecting roadway where the driver has a clear view of approaching traffic on the intersecting roadway before entering. If after stopping at a crosswalk or clearly marked stop line, a driver does not have a clear view of approaching traffic, the driver shall, after yielding the right-of-way to any pedestrian in the crosswalk, slowly pull forward from the stopped position to a point where the driver has a clear view of approaching traffic. The driver shall yield the right-of-way to any vehicle in the intersection or approaching on another roadway so closely as to constitute a hazard during the time when the driver is moving across or within the intersection or junction of roadways and enter the intersection when it is safe to do so.
The definition of Stop in regards to stop signs means to cease, halt or end movement of the vehicle.
Note: The Stop Sign at the intersection of West State St. and Industrial Drive is a legally posted stop sign by PennDot. ALL vehicles approaching West State St. from Industrial Dr. must STOP before entering onto West State St.
Failure to STOP is a violation of the Pa. Vehicle Code and you could be ticketed and required to pay a fine and costs and receive 3 points against your license. POLICE WILL ENFORCE STOP SIGN VIOLATIONS. PLEASE STOP!!!
