I'm currently back and forth with the Roadsafe unit about stop lines.
"In regards to the stop line drivers have to check the road is clear before moving off, if there is no traffic that would be affected by a
vehicle pulling out as long as the driver has checked and approached
the junction with care they are not required to physically stop."
This is in direct contravention with the Highway Code:
You MUST stop behind the line at a junction with a ‘Stop’ sign and a solid white line across the road. Wait for a safe gap in the traffic
before you move off. Laws RTA 1988 sect 36 & TSRGD regs 10 & 16
