GIS tool to determine number of stop signs/lights on a desired route?

Are there any tools out there which can identify (or connect to local GIS) all stop signs and/or stop lights on a selected route created in MapMyRide or similar ride mapping apps? For use to determine routes with least number of stops for commuting and as a ride leader for weekend rides. Thanks.

    I don't know of a tool that does it, but you can put traffic lights on Openstreetmap so you might be able to get some data from there. I don't know if there are any sources of stop sign positions - I suppose you would need to know the priority arrangement at every junction to work it out.

    I think Google Maps takes into account junctions when planning routes or estimating times, however this is probably based on crowd sourced data which gives an average time to make a particular move through a junction (in a car).
