Stop, Yield, Go

In less than five minutes, Gary Lauder convincingly explains why a new type of 'Yield' sign would be safer, more efficient, and generally superior to stop signs at many American intersections.



If this logic applies to cars, then it should also apply to bikes. Interestingly enough, the type of 'T' intersection that Lauder describes is exactly the type of intersection where having the same sign for cars as for bikes is unnecessary. Because a bicyclist riding along the top of the 'T' will never come in contact with vehicular traffic, whether cars are turning or continuing straight, there's no reason to require them to stop at the intersection.
