More Video Showing Drivers Are No More Likely to Stop at Signs Than Cyclists

Meanwhile, it’s dangerous by comparison to do the same thing when piloting a fast, multi-ton vehicle with blind spots. And yet, as video shot this summer by a Ravenswood Manor resident at Wilson and Francisco and posted on DNAinfo shows, it’s very common for drivers to roll through stop signs.

Now we’ve got additional footage shot by Streetsblog Chicago reader J. Patrick Lynch that suggests this kind of driver behavior is the rule, rather than the exception, at four-way stop signs. He shot the video Monday at 6:30 p.m. at Adams and Aberdeen in the West Loop.

    Time and time again in local editorials, op-eds, and comment sections, there's the complaint that bicyclists don't come to a complete stop at stop signs. This is despite the fact that it's safe for someone on a relatively slow, lightweight device with near-360-degree visibility to treat a stop sign like a yield sign.
