Stop Means Stop

That hotbed of criminal activity Park Ridge has gotten tired of people blowing through Stop signs. While going through at speed is unusual, rolling stops are relatively common. The city has decided to do something. In several places throughout the city in "high crime" areas, a second sign has been added to the Stop sign; another red octagonal sign that say, "Stop Means Stop". The signs presently are having an effect. People do notice them and are talking about them. I saw one, it cracked me up, and it did make me stop. People have joked that when the novelty of these signs wear off they may have to add another sign that says, "We Really Mean It!"
