Pueblo converted a large number of intersections from stop to yield but the number of crashes was so small that no statistical analysis was completed. It was noted that several of the crashes were caused by failure to yield the right-of-way. Several of the intersections were converted back to stop-controlled intersection at the end of the study. There were public complaints of high speed and drivers not observing the yield sign. Guidelines for Converting Stop to Yield Control at Intersections.

intersections not controlled by signs, signals, multi-lanes, or pavement. when approaching an intersection of a through street from a street that ends at the intersection, stop then yield the right-of-way to vehicles on the through street. when approaching this type of intersection, yield the right-of-way to any vehicle that has entered or is approaching the intersection on your right. if the road to your right is clear or if approaching vehicles are far enough from the intersection to make your crossing safe, you may proceed. since there are not any traffic controls at this intersection, make sure.
Intersection Capacity. Capacity analysis for 2031 traffic volumes was completed in Synchro for the signalized intersection and Arcady for the roundabout.
Innovative intersection and interchange designs provide transportation agencies and local communities with new options to reduce conflict points on highways and provide safer travel for motorists, pedestrians and bicyclists. Givens Lane at Progress Street, Blacksburg, Va. Roundabouts are not the same as neighborhood traffic circles. Roundabouts are larger and designed for faster speeds. What Is A Roundabout? A circular, unsignalized intersection where all traffic moves counterclockwise around a central island. Traffic entering the roundabout slows down and yields to traffic already inside the roundabout. Roundabouts can be designed with one or more circulating lanes.
However, no published guidelines for removal of unneeded two-way stop control .
However, no published guidelines for removal of unneeded two-way stop control apparently exist and local agencies are reluctant to undertake this action even at ultra-low volume intersections (identified in this report as intersections with less than 150 daily entering vehicles, DEV). NCHRP Report 320 discusses the conversion of stop to yield control (3). The report found that converted intersections experienced an increase in crashes, the severity and distribution of crashes did not significantly change, and converted intersections had higher crash Souleyrette, Tenges, McDonald, Maze, Carriquiry 3 rates than unchanged intersections.
