What are the explicit instructions for two- and four-way stop signs?
State law says that:
¢ Except when otherwise directed by a police officer, every driver who approaches a stop sign must stop at the stop line, but if there is none, before entering the crosswalk. If there's no crosswalk, the driver must stop where he or she can see oncoming traffic but before entering the intersection.
¢ The driver must yield the right of way to any vehicle in the intersection or to any vehicle that's close enough to be an immediate hazard if the driver enters the intersection. The driver also must yield to pedestrians in a crosswalk.
¢ When two vehicles going different directions stop at the same time, the one on the right has the right of way.
