Traveling North on Surrey Cres and attempting a right hand turn into Selbourne St can be quite confusing. There is a stop sign to be complied with. The stop sign overrides the normal give way rule which creates confusion as some people act upon this and others expecting to be given way to find themselves very close to a slow speed head on collision. The Stop sign itself is a hazard. I believe that because the road is clear for several hundred meters no sign would be more appropriate allowing those turning right to apply the standard give way rules giving way to cars moving straight through but having the expected right of way against a southern bound left hand turning vehicle. I live on Selbourne St and see this countless times even when sitting at the cafe watching motorists struggle with the contradicting rules.
