New stop signs in northeast RutlandMay 03,2013Northeast gets
new stop signs
Rutland Police want motorists to be aware of new stop signs in the city’s northeast neighborhood.
The first is at the North Street Extension and Thrall Avenue intersection, which police say is now a three-way stop.
Another three-way stop has been created at the intersection of Church Hill Road and Hillside Road, police said.
Failure to stop at a stop sign carries a fine of $214 and two points on a driver’s license.
Police are also reminding motorists that the posted speed limit in residential and business areas in the city — not including Route 4 and Route 7 — is 30 mph. In a school zone, the speed limit is 25 mph all year long.
Using side streets as shortcuts is not a time saver, police added, and deteriorates the quality of life in those neighborhoods by adding unnecessary traffic.
