Title 75 - VEHICLES
Chapter 33 - Rules of the Road in General
3323 - Stop signs and yield signs.

     § 3323.  Stop signs and yield signs.
        (a)  Intersections controlled by signs.--Preferential right-
     of-way at an intersection may be indicated by stop signs or
     yield signs as authorized in section 6124 (relating to erection
     of traffic-control devices at intersections).
        (b)  Duties at stop signs.--Except when directed to proceed
     by a police officer or appropriately attired persons authorized
     to direct, control or regulate traffic, every driver of a
     vehicle approaching a stop sign shall stop at a clearly marked
     stop line or, if no stop line is present, before entering a
     crosswalk on the near side of the intersection or, if no
     crosswalk is present, then at the point nearest the intersecting
     roadway where the driver has a clear view of approaching traffic
     on the intersecting roadway before entering. If, after stopping
     at a crosswalk or clearly marked stop line, a driver does not
     have a clear view of approaching traffic, the driver shall after
     yielding the right-of-way to any pedestrian in the crosswalk
     slowly pull forward from the stopped position to a point where
     the driver has a clear view of approaching traffic. The driver
     shall yield the right-of-way to any vehicle in the intersection
     or approaching on another roadway so closely as to constitute a
     hazard during the time when the driver is moving across or
     within the intersection or junction of roadways and enter the
     intersection when it is safe to do so.
        (c)  Duties at yield signs.--The driver of a vehicle
     approaching a yield sign shall in obedience to the sign slow
     down to a speed reasonable for the existing conditions and, if
     required for safety to stop, shall stop before entering a
     crosswalk on the near side of the intersection or, if none, then
     at the point nearest the intersecting roadway where the driver
     has a view of approaching traffic on the intersecting roadway
     before entering. After slowing down or stopping, the driver
     shall yield the right-of-way to any vehicle in the intersection
     or approaching on another roadway so closely as to constitute a
     hazard during the time the driver is moving across or within the
     intersection of roadways. If a driver is involved in a collision
     with a vehicle in the intersection or junction of roadways after
     driving past a yield sign, the collision shall be deemed prima
     facie evidence of failure of the driver to yield the right-of-
     way.
