A traffic question for ya:
In Vancouver at the intersection of West Broadway and Maple (by the Marketplace IGA) is a pedestrian-controlled traffic light which controls vehicles travelling along Broadway. Vehicles on Maple have a stop sign at the intersection.
What is required of cars that approach the intersection on Maple when the Boradway traffic lights are RED? Ie. pedestrians are crossing Broadway with the lights? Are cars required to stop at the Stop sign?
Most seem to belive they can roar through, often in a hurry because they don't know how much longer the lights will be red. But I was always taught that a stop sign is a STOP SIGN and yer supposed to stop then go when safe.
As a pedestrian I have crossed MAPLE in this situation and been honked at by cars looking to enter the intersection. I pick my situations carefully, because even though I believe I am in the right, my arguments will not be heard while I am being dragged underneath a car that diasgreed with my belief and chose to run me over
Can anyone quote traffic regulations?
