Compulsory Stop

Posted on 18-02-2019 16:44 | By davidt5

It is very noticeable in Tauranga that most driver’s do not bother to stop at a Compulsory Stop sign. Rather they drive through at a greater speed than they would through a Give Way sign. But the real question is why Otumoetai Rd has almost equal numbers of Give Way signs as Compulsory Stop signs. Oddly in each case the side road is connecting on to the same busy road. Maybe council staff used Give Way signs on even years and Compulsory Stop signs on odd years.
