[CC 1970 §21-94; CC 1947 §11-36]
A. 
Certain entrances to major street intersections shall be designated as "Stop" or "Yield Right-of-Way" entrances by ordinance.
B. 
The Director of Public Works is authorized and required to place and maintain at each such entrance an appropriate sign bearing the legend "Stop" or "Yield Right-of-Way" in accordance with the designating ordinance, such sign to be located in such position and to be provided with letters of such size as to be clearly legible for a distance of at least one hundred (100) feet from said entrance. All such signs shall be illuminated at night or so placed as to be illuminated by the headlights of approaching vehicles or by street lights.
C. 
The operator of a vehicle entering a major street intersection by way of an entrance designated by ordinance as a "Stop" entrance shall stop such vehicle or streetcar opposite the "Stop" sign at such entrance or at such other place as might be designated by markings on the street. Such operator shall yield to other vehicles within the intersection or approaching so closely as to constitute an immediate hazard but may then proceed across said intersection.
D. 
The operator of a vehicle entering a major street intersection by way of an entrance designated by ordinance as a "Yield Right-of-Way" entrance shall slow to a reasonable speed for existing conditions of traffic and visibility, yielding right-of-way to all traffic on the intersecting street which is so close as to constitute an immediate hazard. Proceeding past such sign with resultant collision or other interference with traffic on the intersecting street shall be deemed prima facie in violation of this Chapter.
[CC 1970 §21-95; CC 1947 §11-92]
Where traffic control signals have been installed and at all times when such signals are not in operation, the streets meeting or crossing at such places shall be deemed stop intersections within the meaning of this Code.
[CC 1970 §21-76]
The driver of a vehicle emerging from an alley, driveway or building shall stop the vehicle immediately prior to driving onto a sidewalk or onto the sidewalk area extending across any alleyway or driveway and shall yield the right-of-way to any pedestrian as may be necessary to avoid a collision and upon entering the roadway shall yield the right-of-way to all vehicles approaching on the roadway.
