I leave for work early in the morning (5:15) and sometimes "roll" through the neighborhood Stop signs for convenience and to save a little time and fuel. I know I should come to a complete stop, but was wondering if anyone else does this?

I have to admit, I sometimes don't come to a complete stop, especially at locations with no traffic. But even at those locations that I roll through, I always go so slow that from a distance it looks like a stop.

They love to write tickets for that here in Carolinas. 1 ticket will buy you quite a few years worth of gas

The ticket is a lot more expensive than any small amount of gas saved.

hoopitup2000; I've noticed often the ones that make a complete stop then sort of peal out when they start-off with somewhat of a J/H Smile/Grin, maybe a headshake, it must be the G-force effects.....? Or the A/C cold airstream out of their vents.......?

No, it's violation in Ontario and 3 demerit point with a few hundred dollars fine.
Stop 3 seconds at stop sign.

On a good day, maybe 5% of the people I see come to a complete stop.

I do it to save time. But, I slow down to almost stopped, but not to 100% stopped, momentum zero, count to three. That's just wasting time and slowing down traffic.

Probably at least 30 million+ on a good day, statewide. Full stops take a full second or(2 quick snaps of the fingers) maybe if you have slow thoughts, then take 3 snaps for the officer that is watching you fingers snap/brake lights/vehicle motion(not)! He might have Slow thoughts.... and this could get into "Rocket Science" interview before long.......... or possible stop sign cameras.......like Click Click, No.... but Flash flash = Quietly! = (lost revenue)in hold, waiting?

Funny but Shoplifting seem to have taken away the trend to observe Stop Sign violate-ERS........ Maybe parking lot vehicle damages, red light altercations, bump me-ees, like "sell your text phone and get your brakes fixed" Please! Enjoy driving! for a change, wear Florescent, get noticed! Save fuel. A texting moment is too long of a stop..... Wastes Fuel!!!!!
