SOUTH RIVER, NJ – Residents in South River will start seeing new 4-way stop signs at eight more intersections around town. Last year, a sign went up at the intersection of Morningside & David.

“Effective Wednesday, April 27th, the intersection of Kamm Avenue and Foothills Drive will have a 4-way stop sign,” the South River Police Department said. “Stop signs will be added for traffic traveling on Kamm Avenue in both directions. Please use additional caution at this intersection as drivers become familiar with the change.”
In the near future, 4-way stop signs will also be implemented at the following intersections:
– Leonardine & Sheinfine
– Devoe & Darrow
– Wilcox & Darrow
– Kamm & David
– Albourne & Carmen
– James & Arlington

According to the law in New Jersey, “The driver of a vehicle approaching an intersection shall yield the right of way to a vehicle which has entered the intersection. When 2 vehicles enter an intersection at the same time the driver of the vehicle on the left shall yield the right of way to the driver of the vehicle on the right.”
The driver of a vehicle within an intersection intending to turn to the left shall yield to a vehicle approaching from the opposite direction which is within the intersection or so close thereto as to constitute an immediate hazard, but the driver having so yielded, and having given a signal when and as required by law, may make the left turn; and other vehicles approaching the intersection from the opposite direction shall yield to the driver making the left turn.
