Okay what erks me the mostest is when people drive and then they have a stop sign. They stop and SIT THERE!!!! OH GOD its a 4 way stop. What do I do? Oh no another car has pulled up oppisite me.. he has a stop sign too AHHHHHHHHH! People calm down. Im going to list the rules for a 4 way stop right here so that you can read them and not have one of those panic attacks the next time you are at one. The rules are as follows:

1.Whichever vehicle stops first has priority.
2.If two vehicles stop at the same time, priority is given to the vehicle on the right.
3.If three vehicles stop at the same time, priority is given to the two vehicles going in opposite directions.
4.If four vehicles stop, drivers usually use gestures and other communication to establish right-of-way. In some areas, the custom is for the north-south or the more-trafficked road to have priority, although this is rare.

Now, if you are going left and you got to the sign first, but a second car got there oppisite you and going straight THEY have the right of way. Same applies making a right hand turn.

Okay its a pleasure driving with you and always like I say " You know it going to be a good day if you find a parking spot up front"!
