Entry from British & World English dictionary
An intersection at which there is a sign instructing drivers to stop before proceeding across.
- In hindsight, this turned out to be a route best left to the adventurous - hundreds of potholes, unexpected stopstreets and mining trucks made for an interesting ride.
- So, as we all have been taught, I with the other motorists treated the intersection as a 4-way stopstreet.
- After entering Humansdorp at the stopstreet, go straight into the main street.
