4-way stop right-of-way

Just wondering if anyone else has this happen to them at a 4-Way stop intersection while driving the Camaro.
Seems that most of the time [not all] no matter when I get to the intersection all the other cars let me go first they even wave me through.
I guess they just want to see it go by and

Yes, this happened to us yesterday. We were out cruising around yesterday and we came to a 4/way out on a country road. We were the last car to pull up to it. The other three vehicles just sat there. It probably didn't help that hubby put the car in neutral as he pulled up to the 4/way and revved the engine. He's such a show off. So now, everyone is staring at us. We were like "Hello! you have the right away, go!" After about 20 seconds, hubby just stomped on it and went.

Most 'common folk' sadly have no clue about right of way. I had driver's ed almost 17 years ago and I still know that if two cars get there at the same time, it's the driver to the right who has the right of way. Of course, if 4 arrive simultaneously....everyone is someone's right....so it's all in who wants to be polite....or in my case, who wants to show some initiative and go first.

I usually count to 3 (what you're supposed to do when you're alone at a stop sign anyway) and then if no one has made a move...I go.

Depends on the driver. It's not necessarily the Camaro. Even when I had my Rodeo, people would occasionally let me go even though I wasn't there first.

In this town, everybody waits for everybody else no matter what they're driving. They all just sit there waving at each other to go. Then they all creep out a foot and stop at the same time, then wave again.

I hate them mostly because people do not follow the rules on a 4 way stop.. too many times recently I have seen a car go when it's his turn and the car behind him go also without stopping almost hitting the car that was actually supposed to go next...

I was just out getting lunch and at a T intersection.....i had the stop and the pickup across from me had the stop, but the lady coming up to the T didn't and she stopped bc she was waving me through, which clustered everything up, but its annoying bc this is how accidents happen, flattering and all, but not worth getting rear ended by someone bc you wanna stare at a car.....o well

You kiddin? No one here knows how to operate a stop sign, let alone coordinate with other drivers to wave a Camaro through.

If you pull up to a 4-way stop sign, and the dude to your right was there first, he has the right-of-way. One thing no one here knows is that the guy turning left is supposed to yield to oncoming traffic

I voted I hate 4-way stop intersections...

I am not sure about the 4 way stop but I get a lot of people not passing me when I am trucking down the road. Once I tap down on the gas the MRT V2's sound nice under load.

Never. I think their Jealous. Heck, on my way to work I have to make a left hand turn (no stop sign) onto a side street. Everytime I'm approaching the turn and there's a car asitting at the right waiting turn out (at a stop sign) they jump out and cut me off when I turn on my turn signal. I've stop using my left turn signal there because I've nearly hit 3 car pulling out in front of my. Thank GM for putting good brakes on these cars.

In Dallas, I almost always get waved through, as do most females I know if the other cars are being driven by men.

The fun part is when you have all women at the stop signs who are used to being waved through.

I take it as a courtesy, keep my eyes on the road and move on.

The worst ones are the intersections where one side has *no* stop sign while the other one does. I'll pull up on the side without the sign and the idiot in front of me stops to let the others go. "There's no sign there for a reason, numbnuts....GO."

I voted that I hate 4 way stops.

The guy flashing his lights, or waving you through out of turn just messes up the flow of traffic.

If everyone just went when they were supposed to, the wait times would be shorter.

I'm mostly driving in New York, so I have to face the City drivers, and they will never let you go. Some don't even stop, whoever is the fastest to leave goes first.

STOP!

I sware in my daily commute I go through at least 8 four-way Stops, and if there isn't someone already at the stop sign... people just roll right through. I even saw a car just follow another one through the intersection. I guess he thought it was like a street light?

Sometimes I see cars stop almost in the middle of the intersection, and I'm not sure if they totally misjudged the stop, or just decided to put a stop in for good measure.

There was a thread about how police are not allowing the 5-10 mph cushion anymore, because the cities need the revenue. Well, if they would just patrol the side streets, we'd have a surplus in LA!

Anyway, not to thread-jack... back to the questions. I didn't vote, because there wasn't an answer for me:

A: I always wave for any 'beater' cars to go first (if thier car already has dents all over it, I'm not going to give them a chance to add another, with SIM paint) If they got a nice car, then we go by the book (assuming they know the book).

Man, don't ask me .My SS got passengerside shreaded when a lady did a california roll....when i had no stop, and she surely did.( i had lights on and everything..if i would have planted my foot into the maggie maybe i could have gotten bye, but my scanning showed that her car was coming to a halt. Not a "california roll"


I wan't to beat up on some unsuspecting 2011 GT's soooo bad.

well in a month, parts seem to move slowly and i'm intalling a catback( screw the sleeper mode)..sound sometimes helps.

I always stop at 4 ways.
