What Is a Rolling Stop and Why Is It Dangerous?

What Is a Rolling Stop and Why Is It Dangerous?

Many of us have done it at some point in our lives as drivers. You pull up to a quiet intersection, ease on the brakes, take a look in both directions to find no other vehicles in sight, and slowly roll past the stop sign without coming to a full and complete stop. The action known as a “rolling stop” is just that—a roll through a stop sign without your vehicle’s tires ever coming to a complete standstill.

But why is a rolling stop bad? If you’ve had any driver training, you’ve probably heard the words “full” and “complete” associated with the kind of stops required by the red, octagonal signs so common to our city’s intersections. A rolling stop may seem harmless. And in many cases, no real harm will be brought about by a driver’s decision to perform a rolling stop through an empty intersection. But a rolling stop is a risk, and the consequences can be deadly. There are good reasons why a full—not a rolling—stop at a stop sign is required by law.
