Regardless, if the stop sign is activated.
Failing to do this results in a $490 fine and 6 demerit points.

Police are also cracking down on school crosswalk infractions this month.
You must wait until the road is clear of pedestrians and the crossing guard before you proceed.
The fine for this is anywhere from $150-to-$500 dollars and three demerit points.
