Because the Town of Marana has received comments on the four-way stop at eastbound Moore Road and Dove Mountain Blvd, they have asked that we include this PSA in our newsletter. See "Road Work Ahead" article above for timing of traffic signal installation at this intersection.
STOP means STOP!
A PSA FROM THE TOWN OF MARANA
The Town of Marana reminds residents that Arizona state law requires all drivers approaching a STOP sign to stop at the stop line before entering the intersection.
Even if you have already stopped before the stop line (maybe there is a car ahead of you), the law requires that you stop again at the stop line. Failure to do so can result in a traffic citation, or, worse, a collision. If multiple people are stopped at the intersection, follow the right-hand rule.
What is the right-hand rule?
The driver that arrives at an all-way STOP-controlled intersection yields to the driver that arrived first. But if two drivers arrive at the same time, the driver on the left yields to the driver on the right.
