Intersections controlled with a stop sign
Before slowing down, look all around you. Use your mirrors to check traffic behind you.
Steadily reduce speed as you approach the intersection.
While slowing down, keep at least a five to seven-second distance behind the vehicle in front of you.
Come to a complete stop. Do not cross the stop line. Do not let your vehicle roll forward or backward. When traffic conditions allow, move forward to check that the way is clear or start across the intersection. Never back up at an intersection.
When stopped behind another vehicle at the intersection, leave enough space to pull out and pass if needed. Leaving this space protects you in three ways: it lets you pull around the vehicle in front if it stalls; it helps prevent you from being pushed into the vehicle ahead if you are hit from behind; and it reduces the risk of collision if the vehicle ahead rolls backward or backs up.
When you have confirmed the way is clear look left, ahead, right and left again before you move forward. Continue checking your mirrors and all sides as you move through the intersection. Do not shift gears while crossing.
