Stop Signs on Private Property

While exiting the parking lot where I work, there is a stop sign before you pull out onto the municipally-owned roadway. People are constantly running right throug this stop sign without even slowing down. We are having a frienldy argument in the office about whether a police officer could give you a ticket for that or not. Is a stop sign still an enforceable stop sign even on private property? And does it make a difference if the stop sign is in the middle or a parking lot or private road, not linking to a public roadway?

Any exit from a private property is to be considered a yield... nothing more.

Private property does not qualify as a highway/roadway under the HTA, which enables an officer to charge you.
