Stop Signs

Do Not Park Within 30 Feet of a Stop or Yield Sign
Parking is prohibited within 30 feet of a stop or yield sign to improve the visibility of the sign, to allow for better sight-lines between pedestrians and motorists approaching the intersection, and to ensure that motorists waiting at the stop sign can see oncoming traffic on the other approaches.

Tip: Most cars are 18-20 feet long, so the space between you and a stop or yield sign should be larger than a single parking space.
