Just a general question I cannot find the answer to on the internet.

Example: An intersection in a residential neighborhood that has stop signs on two of the sides and the other two are free to drive through. Is is wrong to stop anyway even though you do not have a stop sign on your side? Or is it acceptable to do so to make sure there is nothing coming or just out of habit? Or is it unsafe to stop at an intersection where there is no stop sign because you run the risk of being rear ended..even though that would clearly be the person that does the rear ending's fault.

Please advise, common knowledge and to settle a debate. Thanks so much.

In regard to the scenario that you presented, all vehicles must enter an intersection with caution regardless of whether there is a traffic control device (e.g. stop sign) or not; therefore, slowing and proceeding cautiously through an intersection is warranted. In regard to a full stop without a stop sign, this could be construed as blocking a roadway.

Thank you for your question.
