All-Way Stops Policy Update
The change to the policy expands criteria for all-way stops with an option for public consultation to determine if the surrounding community is supportive of the proposed all-way stop.
All-way stop signs are installed by the City of Mississauga to ensure the safe flow of traffic by controlling vehicle and pedestrian right-of-way at intersections. The All-Way Stops policy identifies the criteria used to determine whether all-way stops are warranted. The change to the policy will expand criteria beyond the technical requirements and provide staff with more flexibility in supporting proposed all-way stops.
At the request of the local Ward Councillor, a survey can be completed to residents within 250 metres (820 ft.) of the intersection.A minimum of 66 per cent of respondents must vote “yes” to the recommendation for the installation of an all-way stop.
