The purpose of a stop sign is to prevent accidents, injury and death, which could occur should a motorist drive through an intersection without taking necessary and legal precautions. When stop signs are present at an intersection, it means that the only safe way of travelling across is by stopping and monitoring traffic on both sides before proceeding, usually because oncoming traffic is obscured by parked cars, structures, trees and the like. When motorists fail to stop and look both ways, they could be hit by another vehicle, or hit someone themselves. The Fulton police Department has received complaints of motorists not stopping at stop signs. The Fulton Police Department will begin to watch and enforce the regulations of the law to prevent the tragedy of an accident, injury and or death. “Please stop at the required stop signs”.
