New “California Stop” Signage

The City of Austin is apparently testing out a new form of intersection signage to indicate that a “California Stop”, also known as a rolling stop, is allowed at an intersection. The test has not resulted in any accidents and may lead the way for future intersection signage.

California Stop?

In reality, a developer installed these signs in part of the Mueller neighborhood. The street is slowly being expanded to include a median and this is one of the crossovers, currently the end of the divided section. One of the two signs will be removed at some point, but why install two in the first place? Why leave them both up for weeks (at this point)?

  1. I don’t know why but the picture isn’t showing up for me. Do you have another link to it or something?

    1. Sorry about that. I migrated my site over to a new host a year or so ago and I’m still running across old posts that had issues.

      Resolved now. Enjoy!

      1. Thanks for getting it fixed so quick. The signage looks great! I guess people get to decide if they’d rather stop or yield at this intersection. Whichever they’re feeling at that moment. Haha

  2. I think they have removed the other sign.

    1. Yeah, further construction dealt with it. It was up like that for maybe a few weeks.
