Stop Sign with a white border

Unread post by Sparkie on

I was out in front of my house and some kid ran the stop sign.
I tossed my arms up for a what do you think you are doing.
He stopes and rolls down the window, I ask why did he run the sign.
His reply " The stop sign's with a white border are optional "
He said look it up.

Any truth to this or was he just BSing me.

Either he heard something from a friend and believed it, or he's just being a clown. Standards for road signs in Ontario are set by Ontario Regulation 615. Click on this link here:

http://www.e-laws.gov.on.ca/html/regs/e ... _ev001.htm

Paragraphs 6-12 cover "stop" signs, and you'll see the white border there. No truth to what he was saying whatsoever.
