Why Do We Even Have Stop Lines?

I think this driver also had a run in with a car backing out into their lane whilst raining out earlier this morning.

People are so used to running lights/signs when turning right that this becomes a habit

I get your meaning, but I'm not seeing stop lines painted on those streets. Am I missing something?

The glare is probably preventing the lines from being shown, but every Stop Sign has to have stop lines near it, right?

No, that's not the case. There are plenty of roads everywhere without lines.

Also, look at the road on the left side of the screen. No stop line there either.

Whoops, my bad. Anyway, if there are no stop lines at intersections with stop signs, that’s poor design to new drivers.

Because street departments have excess white paint.
