A driver is guilty of failing to observe a stop sign if he or she does not bring the vehicle to a complete stop within five feet of the nearest crosswalk or stop line. A driver is also guilty of failing to observe a yield sign if he enters or crosses an intersection, without first slowing to a reasonable speed, stopping if necessary. The driver must yield the way to all traffic on the intersection street close enough to constitute an immediate hazard. The fines are $52 to $202. The driver will also receive two points by the MVS.
New Jersey laws govern which vehicle has the right of way, but drivers should always be prepared to yield. Some basic rules apply. Always yield to police cars, fire engines, and ambulances, when they are giving warning sighs, such as flashing sirens and lights.
