Obedience to a Stop sign

STO #59 & KSA 8-1528 …find the exact wording here:

Loose Meaning: All vehicle movement must cease. We like the image we shared reminding drivers to STOP: Stop, Think, Observe, and then Proceed. The ‘Observation’ piece is especially important. Look both directions (left, right, left again) and check blind spots BEFORE leaving a stop. In McPherson, failure to stop is a moving violation which is a $60 fine, plus $75 Municipal Court Cost. Pretty expensive for the additional 3-4 seconds another glance will cost you!

Each Tuesday, as activity permits, we address a topic dealing with traffic enforcement in the City of McPherson. This feature is organized by the Traffic Section of Patrol Bureau. If you have a traffic enforcement question unrelated to the addressed topic feel free to PRIVATE MESSAGE McPherson KS Police Department on Facebook.

We may address the question in a future “Traffic Stop”. Be aware, we have several topics already lined up. We appreciate your patience! And if any question requires an immediate answer please feel free to phone one of our Officers at our non-emergency number: 245-1200.
