Guys, what if all went ahead and stopped trying to look for all of the holes in society, and stopped trying to poke new ones in places they aren't already present, and realized that some policies are designed to make everything better off?

"You don't have to stop at a stop sign without a sticker."
"You can deny consent to a cop checking your bag at a concert."
"You can plea the fifth if a cop asks you where you're going in a traffic stop."
"If a cop stops you and asks for your ID, you can just shout 'AM I BEING DETAINED?!' before walking off."
"If you do the Konami cheat code, you become instantly sober enough to drive and your car becomes invisible to traffic cops."

Or you can just stop at a stop sign.
And allow the cop to make sure you're not smuggling crack into a rock concert.
And let the guy peak at your license for 5 seconds so he can know who you are, and maybe make small talk so he can get information that might stop a crime.

Seriously, everyone's so worked up over how ****** up they're going to get by the police that I wouldn't be surprised if more than half of the stories I hear nowadays are due to self fulfilling prophesy.

"Man, I didn't stop at a stop sign I totally don't have to stop at and the cop gave me a ticket anyway, **** THE SYSTEM COPS JUST WANNA **** WITH YOU!"

Interesting, but I'm not about to check every stop sign to see if it has a sticker on it so I can go through it and perhaps challenge a cop.

This post is maliciously false. I know of no jurisdiction in which this could be used as a viable defense.

In law, there are defenses deployed by counsel for various traffic violations. This information is a drastic misinterpretation of the "mistake of fact" defense. An in-depth explanation of this defense can be found here: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mistake_(criminal_law)

Almost every municipality does not establish and erect each and every traffic sign. Traffic signs on private lots, streets, and alleyways are owned by their respective private property owners, and most cities will only enforce traffic signs after a certain amount of time has passed to give notice to local residents of the change in the flow of traffic. An exception is "safety" laws such as speed limits. Stop signs are not one of these exceptions as they only direct the flow of traffic; obeying the flow of traffic signs (which are enforceable by law, an officer may always ticket ANY violation of a posted sign regardless of legitimate or not as "reckless driving", "negligent driving", or can just inconvenience) relates to but is not determinative of road safety, and may be enforced by private property land owners.

The primary example of this relates to private parking lots. Often stop signs are not placed at all, but solid white lines about a foot thick are painted onto 'intersections' at private lots and often marked with the elongated "stop" paint near the painted line. These are enforceable (and, thus, punishable by any law enforcement agency) rules of conduct for the right to use the property.

In CA law, law-makers reworded the infraction to include ANY posted signs, whether painted or erected. Be cautious when dealing with "legally binding", often there is no direct line to legal obligation and judges make that determination, not attorneys or law students.

Reckless Driving CA Vehicle Code 23103
Negligent Operator CA Vehicle Code 12810
Failure to stop CA Vehicle Code 22450

The stop sign is there for a reason.
I'd rather obey it, and not get into a ******* huge wreck, than disobey it just for the lulz of ruining some cops finances because he thought it was binding

"Oh don't worry about stopping, there's not sticker on this sign"
And then they got into a ******* crash and died.

Or you could stop at a ******* stop sign because it's safe.

How the **** am I supposed to see the back of a ******* stop sign to know if I should stop?
User avatar #17 - Crusader (12/23/2013) [+] (3 replies)
This is not true.

Even if it was, you're still human scum if you go through stop signs.
User avatar #12 - jellybob (12/23/2013) [-]
or you could ******* stop at stop signs and NOT be a tool
User avatar #43 - noimnot (12/23/2013) [-]
Let me just peel the sticker off and take a picture for court then.

User avatar #36 - djjeroenski (12/23/2013) [+] (1 reply)
but how can you tell when you drive towards a sign, wether there is a sticker on the back or not?
User avatar #38 to #36 - spasticpuppet (12/23/2013) [-]
That's how they make you obey the sign.
User avatar #28 - teoferrazzi (12/23/2013) [-]
great, how can I check when I'm coming from the opposite direction?
User avatar #27 - subtard (12/23/2013) [-]

Some private places like parking lots can request the police to take notice of stop sign violators. Most don't though, so you could legally roll through most parking lot stop signs. But if you get into an accident because of it, it'd be 100% your fault.
But if you drive in a blatantly unsafe way in a parking lot you can still be arrested; depending on how bad it is.

isnt it illegal to simply put traffic signs somewhere...?
User avatar #3 - dabronydude (12/23/2013) [+] (5 replies)
what if the sticker falls off from years of wear, rain etc?

It's funny that everyone automatically assumes that people would see this and be all like, "YAAAAAAY! I'm going to go out and recklessly disobey traffic signs!" I interpreted it as a technicality that could help you in a bind. Of course no one should blatantly disregard stop signs, that would be idiotic.

I don't speed through stop signs, but I don't tend to stop at them unless there's heavy traffic.
Typically, I'll slow my car to walking speed long enough to see whether or not there are any cars coming, then I just accelerate through. It's easier on my ********** car's engine and brakes that way. It's guaranteed, though, that if my mother is in the car with me, I'll get chided for not "stopping" at the stop sign.

Also, this post is ******** . Sticker or no, a stop sign is typically there for a reason, and while you may not have to completely "stop" at every single one, there's no real excuse for driving recklessly and acting like a dick.
