Alexa, play "Cars" by Gary Numan

Today, I ran a stop sign that was completely obscured by foliage, in a city I was unfamiliar with. A city bus then T-boned me. My car is now totalled, and I’m afraid this will now go to court. FML

Your life sucks but at the same time the intersection was not obscured. The stop sign was. If there is no traffic light at an intersection then one of the directions if not all four has a stop sign. The fact you can't see any is reason to slow down while approaching the intersection.

Yes and no... If the other stop signs weren't visible easily from his vantage point, it's a covered stop sign. I don't have to stop at an intersection if there's no sign on my side but there is on the others, but I do slow down. It's not illegal to go through and if you don't see a sign, it's completely correct to assume the cross section does.

without any signpost indicating priority, as you always have to give way to the right.

OP doesnt state if the bus tboned him from the left or from the right, but without any signs you should always slow down to a velocity alowwing you to quickly come to a full stop.

Congratulations! You're getting a new car and some spending money! If you took lots of good pictures of the "completely obscured" stop sign. If you didn't, the city has probably fixed the problem by now and you're completely screwed.
