that does seem to be rather a lot.

my rule of thumb for tertiary in "normal" cities (e.g., not NYC) is that 
it has traffic lights at
all intersections with other (tertiary, secondary, primary) highways and 
where there are stop
signs, it's the "other" (residential/unclassified) road that's controlled.
