Three-way and four-way stops are common enough, but here's something that's far less common -- a five-way stop. This one's in Springfield on Michigan Avenue at Riverside Street (on the south side of the city a few blocks north of Republic Road). The other street at the intersection is Michigan Terrace. In this view, looking north, Michigan Avenue goes northeast (on the right) and Michigan Terrace goes northwest (on the left).
