I understand the urge to commit violent acts in traffic.  I live in Maryland.

However, in reality, it's a pretty dumb thing to go to jail/die over.

A guy in a Rent a Center truck brandished a knife at me once because I wouldn't let him butt into the long line of traffic I had been waiting in. I may have let him in if I hadn't seen him pull out of the line 10 cars back. Would have got a picture with my phone if I hadn't been getting ready to run him over if he got out.

You have a weapon in your hand, I'm wearing a 2 ton armored weapon. good call, buddy.

There are only three rules to a four way stop and this new information does not alter them. They apply in order of precedence:

1. First in First Out
2. Yield to a driver on the right
3. Yield to a parallel driver when turning left

There is no yielding to brandishing knives in the intersection. You simply run them over. This does not disrupt the three basic rules as they cannot stab your car to death.
