The placement of a stop sign at an intersection has caused debate after 20 cars were filmed appearing to ignore it.

A man, claiming to work for Public Works in the city of Vallejo, California, filmed a number of cars passing through the intersection and uploaded the video to his TikTok account trainedeyeguy.

In the video, a number of cars seemingly ignore the stop sign completely.

“Not a chance,” he says as an SUV passes through.

“Didn’t even slow down.”

He points out there is a very visible white line for cars to stop at and a red stop sign.

“Not gonna happen here,” he says, as yet another car drives through without stopping.

“It’s almost like it’s not there.”

He films from a number of angles, at one point facing the drivers across the road.

But they continue to pass through without stopping.

He notes this is despite the fact it’s obvious he’s filming and works for council.

Suggestions on change to sign

On TikTok, people suggested the sign should be changed from 'stop' to 'yield' or 'give way'.

“Doesn’t need to be a stop sign there,” one man wrote.

Another man wrote he “never stops” at this particular stop sign while another wrote it’s an “ideal spot” for a yield sign.

“Not much space for multiple cars to stop and it doesn’t seem like a busy intersection,” he wrote.

The man who filmed the intersection agreed a yield sign would work better but “the point is that it’s a stop”.

“It doesn’t matter what drivers think it should be. It is what it is,” he wrote.

He added it’s not a new sign either and has been there for decades.

Others agreed the sign should be changed but suggested the drivers needed to follow the rules.

“The fact they don’t even attempt to slow down is ridiculous,” one man wrote.
