During the study, researchers observed 288 intersections for 30 minutes each. What they discovered was that 37 percent of the cars rolled right through stop signs and another 7 percent didn’t even slow down. If the car actually stopped, it usually did so in or past the crosswalk, which is still dangerous for young pedestrians. One of the most unsettling discoveries from this study is that nearly one-third of the drivers committed a stop sign violation when children were present.
