How is an All Way Stop intersection innovative?

--- Quote ---Between 2017 and 2020, DelDOT converted 20 low-volume intersections statewide, mostly in rural and suburban areas, from two-way to all-way stops. In the two years after the change (2021 and 2022), the number of crashes at those intersections fell by 71 percent overall. Fatal crashes dropped by 75 percent, while crashes with injuries plummeted by 90 percent.

The only reason they were awarded is because the data showed a decrease in crashes due to them implementing all way stops at "low volume intersections"

They didn't do anything but add stop signs, to already low volume intersections, we're not talking about Limestone Rd & Route 7 here, basically this is on the level of a good attendance award.
