DC StreetSafe: Stop Signs

Read Later

You can’t actually get a ticket for not knowing when to stop being completely annoying, but you can for not coming to a complete stop at an intersection. The MPD is now using automated safety enforcement to reduce these violations.

 

Nationally, 20% of fatal crashes and nearly half of all injury crashes occur at intersections.  Such crashes are easily preventable if the driver stops completely as required by law. The 32 new stop sign cameras are located near schools.

Drivers should come to a complete stop prior to the stop bar at an intersection controlled by a stop sign or traffic signal.  This allows the driver to look around and ensure that he or she has the right of way before continuing.  The stop sign units use radar to detect if a vehicle stopped at, rolled through, or ran a stop sign.  Tickets will be issued when vehicles fail to stop at a stop sign.

Camera Locations

The MPD has a total of 32 Stop Sign cameras to identify vehicles passing a stop sign without coming to a full stop.
