    Depends on the time and how busy it is. Generally it's a California stop, unless the place is packed.

    Well, in my state Stop signs on private property, as in parking lots are not enforcable, neither is parking infractions unless the owner of the property wants to act on them so parking lot stop signs are non existant as far as I am concerned- especially when the blade's down.

    you naild this one..lol

    The only time you need to stop is when you are leaving the lot and are entering the city, state roadway marked or not. You can't just pull out from a lot or drive with out stoping.

    No cop, No stop!! lol

    I try not to stop until we've pushed the snow to its' destination. I don't want to lose the momentum, especially when using a push box or wings to move larger amounts of snow.
