Idaho Stop makes cyclists 14.5% Safer

Link: Idaho Stop makes cyclists 14.5% Safer

That number isn’t enormous, but every percantage point counts when it’s the difference between life or death.

Stop signs attempt to control and diffuse our intersections.  Idaho Stop law gives precedence to bicycle traffic by turning stop signs into yield signs.  In Portland, 2-way stops are favored.  I find that it maintains the menacing potential of oncoming cross traffic.  I prefer the 4-way stops prevalent in Philadelphia and New York City.
