Ordinance Chapter: Article III - Stop and Through Streets

Appro­pri­ate signs shall be post­ed to show all through, stop and yield right-of-way streets, all one-way streets and alleys and all stop inter­sec­tions. (See 625 ILCS Sec. 5/11–304)

The dri­ver of a vehi­cle approach­ing a yield sign, in obe­di­ence to such sign, shall slow down to a speed rea­son­able for the exist­ing con­di­tions and if required for safe­ty to stop, shall stop at a clear­ly marked stop line, but if none, before enter­ing the 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.  After slow­ing 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 an imme­di­ate haz­ard dur­ing the time such dri­ver is mov­ing across or with­in the inter­sec­tion.  Sched­ule “D” shall list all applic­a­ble yield right-of-way inter­sec­tions.  (See 625 ILCS 5/11–302)

The dri­ver of a vehi­cle shall stop in obe­di­ence to a stop sign at an inter­sec­tion where a stop sign is erect­ed pur­suant to ordi­nance at one or more entrances there­to and shall pro­ceed cau­tious­ly, yield­ing to the vehi­cles not so oblig­ed to stop which are with­in the inter­sec­tion or approach­ing so close as to con­sti­tute an imme­di­ate haz­ard, unless traf­fic at such inter­sec­tion is con­trolled by a police offi­cer on duty, in which event, the direc­tions of the police offi­cer shall be com­plied with.  Sched­ule “A” shall list all stop inter­sec­tions. (See 625 ILCS Sec. 5/11–302)

It shall be unlaw­ful to oper­ate any vehi­cle on any streets or alleys des­ig­nat­ed as one-way streets or alleys by ordi­nance in any direc­tion oth­er than that so des­ig­nat­ed.  (See 625 ILCS Sec. 5/11–208)

The streets and parts of streets of the Coun­ty des­ig­nat­ed by ordi­nance as “through streets” are here­by declared to be through streets.  The dri­ver of a vehi­cle shall stop at the entrance to a through street and shall yield the right-of-way to oth­er vehi­cles which have entered the inter­sec­tion or which are approach­ing so close on a through street as to con­sti­tute an imme­di­ate haz­ard unless direct­ed oth­er­wise by the traf­fic officer.
