The stop sign post can puncture your oil pan if you run over it. So no I never run over them.

The value of any gas you save is lost with your first ticket!!

Yes, if the stop sign is painted on the road.

But I stop first.

It is hard on the vehicle if you roll over the stop sign.

No, rolling over stop signs is bad for your bumper and tires.

I agree with GrumpyCat............

No, as the resulting body damage would be very expensive to repair!
