Note to Drivers in the City: Don’t Block the Box

Did you know it’s illegal to block the box in an intersection? Avoid blocking the box — wait to enter an intersection until you are sure you can make it all the way through the intersection. Wait behind the stop bar, not in the crosswalk. Wait behind the stop bar, not in the crosswalk, and look to see if the vehicles in front of you on the other side of the intersection have left enough room for you to make it through without stopping in the crosswalk on the other side.

The fine for a vehicle obstructing or impeding the free flow of traffic in an intersection or marked crosswalk is $125. Learn more at this Baltimore City Department of Transportation webpage.
