Stop Sign for My Neighborhood

  1. Stop Signs & 4-Way Stops

    The City of Durham Department of Transportation installs and maintains traffic control devices, including stop signs, in accordance with the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD).

  2. Stop Signs & 4-Way Stop Justification

    Multi-way stop control can be useful as a safety measure at intersections if certain conditions exist. An engineering study of traffic conditions, pedestrians, bicyclists, and physical characteristics of the intersection is first gathered. This data is then compared to the national guidelines for "multi-way stop sign installations" for determining whether a four-way stop is justified.
