If there are no vehicles approaching a four way stop and no pedestrians approaching (as a cyclist I am far more aware of my environment than a vehicle driver) what is the point in stopping? If there is questionable visibility, I slow down enough that I can easily stop if required. In a car I always stop, as there is no effort involved in stopping the vehicle and resuming my travels. On a bike, if I'm moving at an appreciable speed, it's a more significant event.

If there are pedestrians or vehicles anywhere near, I stop, unless I can time my passage to coincide with a car traveling through the intersection as well.

Interestingly enough, ask Ryan about "Naked streets" to see how well things might work if everyone drove this way, or even better, if all signs were simply removed.
