Letter to the editor: Signs are there for good reason

Earlier this month I saw a TV news story that some cities are placing cameras at stop signs. When you are caught not stopping at a stop sign, you might expect a fine. A lot of the comments were against this practice.

I would be OK with this, and I’ll tell you why. Every day when I’m around town, I see drivers not stopping for stop signs. It happens quite frequently. One of the worst places is the four-way stop at the intersection of 14th Street and Doddridge Avenue. Some vehicles seem to make no effort to stop. I believe stop signs do not mean we can just slow down then just keep going if there is nothing coming. Perhaps law enforcement or other authorities could explain the rules.

Don’t forget to do what the sign says: STOP.
