Do you always make a complete stop when at a stop sign, even if no one is around, or do only make a complete stop when needed?

I always make a complete stop, here in Portugal if you pass a red light or don't stop at the sign during the first 3 years of your driver's license and you get caught you can say goodbye to your license.

Yes, I always stop fully when at a Stop sign. That is what we are supposed to do. I often see people at the corner of my building running through the stop sign. It makes me so mad, children play in the area and could be hurt. Take care...

I'd be lying if I said I did. 98% of the time I do, but if it is really late or a place where I know there isn't much traffic I'll nearly stop and then accerlerate again. It really depends on where I am. If we are in our home state then I tend to be less vigulant. Here in Virginia, though, I always stop, since I never know who is coming at me. This state has a horribly high accident rate. I'm even super careful when I have a green light as I have seen a lot of people blow thru red lights because they weren't paying attention.

I always make a complete stop. No matter where you are, something could happen. Yeah, I am one of those extremely cautious drivers that some don't like, including my husband..lol

Yes, its always to better safe than sorry. That's one of those principles that I always abide to whenever I can. But I do know that if you are really unlucky to have a police officer or car watching you from behind or whatever, and that if they are really strict, you can get fined for not stopping even if the roads are completely clear. A stop sign means you must stop. It's harsh, but its better to be safe and not lose your life (and money too).
