68 Stopping and giving way at a stop sign or stop line at other places

(1) A driver approaching or at a place with a stop sign or stop line must stop and give way in accordance with this rule, unless the place is:
(a) an intersection, or
(b) a children's crossing, or
(c) an area of a road that is not a children's crossing only because it does not have:
(i) children crossing flags, or
(ii) children's crossing signs and twin yellow lights, or
(d) a level crossing, or
(e) a place with twin red lights.
Maximum penalty: 20 penalty units.
Examples :
1 A stop sign at a break in a dividing strip dividing the part of the road used by the main body of moving vehicles from a service road.
2 A stop sign on an exit from a carpark where the exit joins the road.
Note 1 :
"Children's crossing" is defined in rule 80,
"intersection" ,
"stop line" and
"twin red lights" are defined in the Dictionary, and
"level crossing" is defined in rule 120.
Note 2 : For this rule,
"give way" means the driver must remain stationary until it is safe for the driver to proceed--see the definition in the Dictionary.
Note 3 : For the stopping and giving way rules applying to a driver at an intersection or level crossing with a stop sign or stop line, see rule 67 (intersections) and rule 121 (level crossings). Rule 80 deals with stopping at a stop line at a children's crossing.
(2) The driver must stop as near as practicable to, but before reaching:
(a) the stop line, or
(b) if there is no stop line--the stop sign.
(3) The driver must give way to any vehicle or pedestrian at or near the stop line or stop sign.
