Stop Means Stop

There's a 3-way stop near our place in SE Burnaby at which 95% of drivers never fully stop and just "slow 'n go" on the right turn. Plenty don't even slow much.

Well, it caught up to a couple of drivers today. Car came to full stop, driver behind was already scanning left to see if traffic was coming, instead of stopping, and ploughed into the stopped car. At least I'm assuming that's what happened by the configuration of the vehicles and the damage. Cops were already there when I drove by the scene.

STOP means STOP, folks! I always keep an eye on my mirror when I stop at that intersection to see if anyone is barrelling along behind me...
