What Is a Rolling Stop?
How many times have you seen a motorist pull out into traffic after coming to a parking lot exit or the end of their driveway without first coming to a complete stop? You likely see such an occurrence one or more times per day.
How often do you see a driver do the same at an intersection when approaching a stoplight or stop sign? Sadly, many of us also see motorists engage in this driving tactic, known as a rolling stop, multiple times daily. This illegal driving habit falls under the umbrella of reckless driving because of how potentially deadly it is.
