Dixon police: Stop not stopping

DIXON – Fair warning: An apparent rash of drivers who have decided to ignore stop signs is prompting Dixon police to launch “Operation Start Stopping.”

The “direct enforcement campaign” is coming after police and City Council members have fielded “numerous” complaints about drivers not stopping at controlled intersections, the department said today in a news release.

Officers, who have been monitoring various intersections, will be stepping up enforcement and citing those who fail to come to a complete stop, the release said.

So stop it, or be prepared for a $120 fine, which is what rolling a stop sign will get you.
