Letter: It means, Stop!
What are stop signs doing on our streets? When an intersection has poor visibility, and much heavier traffic is on one leg, a stop sign is helpful. Making drivers stop, not pause, gives the operators time to view the area for possible encounters.
I was helped by a friend to find out that I did NOT stop. Well, I found it hard to believe that I was not a safe driver. Paying attention to the next sign and realizing my friend, Roy was correct, I began to teach myself the right way. After six months to a year, I could say that now I stop for most stop signs and red lights. You can do it, too. You probably will learn quicker than me, as I was over 45 years old. Habits are hard to overcome.
