Stop sign program

Stop signs are installed in Vancouver based on volume of traffic, and number of accidents.

The City of Vancouver assigns right-of-way at intersections using two- three- and four-way stop signs. 

The City determines how many stop signs to install at each intersection based on:

  • Volume of traffic
  • Number of accidents per year

Report damaged signs

A damaged sign can be a hazard to pedestrians and vehicles. Contact 3-1-1 immediately to report signs that are:

  • Damaged
  • Missing
  • Blocked (for example, by branches)

Request stop sign changes

Contact 3-1-1 to request:

  • Stop signs be installed at an uncontrolled intersection
  • Directional changes for existing stop signs
  • Additional stop signs be installed (for example, change a two-way stop to a four-way stop)
