Drivers’ Ed. 101 – Stop Signs Complaints have surfaced about drivers in Mallard Bay ignoring stop signs on streets in the community, particularly the one at the corner of Canvasback and Mallard Bay Drive. As a reminder, the word "stop" means STOP which in the case of a moving vehicle means "cause all wheels to cease rotation". Stop signs are not suggestions. They don't mean that you should look both ways before driving through the intersection at full speed. They don't mean coast through the intersection slowly, and I'm pretty sure they're not intended as a display of how the county wastes taxpayers' money on unnecessary signage. Ours is a residential community. People and pets routinely walk along our streets. If you object to stop signs, the 25 mph speed limit or any other traffic rule in Mallard Bay, please take it up with the county, but in the meantime, please obey the law.
