In Belgium, stop signs are not allowed unless you can't yield without stopping.
So if I can safely yield to crossing traffic without stopping, the stop sign shouldn't have been there, and putting it there was a violation of traffic rules by itself.
These are the ones I'll happily roll through.

OTOH I'll stop, even when there's no stop sign, when visibility is poor.

The US could see a major reduction in its automotive fuel use just by getting rid of the silly, wasteful 4-way stops and replace them with priority / yield signs according to traffic densities.
