A Fayetteville Street’s Traffic Pattern will be improved on Monday.
The City of Fayetteville Transportation Department is installing stop signs at the T- intersection of South West Avenue and South Street, which will make it three-way stop.
After reviewing the intersection, officials say the all-way stop will increase safety for all users.
Here’s what the Fayetteville Police Department advises of the following procedures for all way intersections:
- Vehicle Right of Way – The first vehicle that approaches the intersection, is the first vehicle to proceed after coming to a complete stop. If two vehicles reach the intersection simultaneously, the vehicle on the left must yield the right of way to the vehicle on the right
- Vehicle Turn Signals – Drivers must use their turn signal 100 feet prior to the intersection.
- Pedestrian Traffic – If a crosswalk is marked, the pedestrian will always have the right of way over vehicles. If there is not a marked crosswalk, vehicles shall have the right of way, with due caution to pedestrians.
- Bicycle Traffic – Cyclists are granted the rights of pedestrians only if they dismount and walk their bicycle at an intersection.
