While driving. Not completely stoping at a stop sign, but rather slowing down and coasting through. Same as a california stop.

Best if driver yells "Stoptional!" while commiting.

1. Not completely stopping at a stop sign, but going through it. The majority of drivers do this.

2. In those rare instances when for some reason a stop light won't turn green, or turns red for no real reason. Usually when the light is old and doesn't have a sensor to tell it where traffic is coming from, but there can be other factors.
1. This sign isn't stoptional. There's a cop right over there.

2. Dude, there's a bus parked on the sensor over there. The light is never going to turn, just go through it. It's stoptional.
