I have to a drive thru an area with a bunch of moronic fussy busybody residents who demand a new stop sign every time a car fails to stop for someone in a crosswalk. As a result, the arterial looks like a red octagon forest. Somebody should tell the residents that the less-generous commuters just cut thru their neighborhoods because there are no traffic controls on the 25mph residential zone where someone might ACTUALLY get hurt by a vehicle.
On the bicycle: If there's no other vehicle present to claim the right-of-way, I coast and maybe throw a slow signal, but I don't touch the brakes.
On the motorcycle, I usually stand on the front brakes until the bike almost does a stoppie, then I take off. If I'm feeling really generous I'll drag my toe on the ground. These are all clutch-in maneuvers, I slow too much to leave it in gear.
In my car, I try to roll it in 2nd gear at <5mph, to avoid having to put it in 1st.
4-way stops are the tool of satan, pointless traffic controls designed only to waste time, hurt the environment, generate noise pollution, and add wear-and-tear to your vehicle.
4.5 years on this commute, not even a sideways glance from a cop.
