Attention, drivers in and around Hoboken, N.J.: When you see the sign pictured on the right, it means exactly what it says. Why is this difficult? “Stop” means stop. Are you all that stupid?
“Stop” doesn’t mean head toward the intersection at 50 miles per hour on a residential block, lightly tap the brake and blow through it at about 40.
“Stop” doesn’t mean roll out into the middle of the intersection.
“Stop” doesn’t mean stop at the intersection and refuse to move until the closest oncoming car is somewhere around Netcong.
“Stop” means stop, check for oncoming traffic or pedestrians, and then proceed.
Seriously, is it really that hard?
