STOP means STOP!
According to recent studies conducted by our Engineering department, only 23% of drivers in Park Ridge come to a complete stop at intersections controlled by stop signs. The Police Department, in conjunction with Public Works, will initiate the Stop Means Stop program. The program consists of a vigorous media campaign accompanied by affixing additional signs that read "Means Stop" to stop signs at targeted intersections. Officers will concentrate enforcement efforts at these locations. The signs would also be useful in addressing resident’s complaints about stop sign violations. Upon receipt of the complaint, traffic section personnel would request these signs to be temporarily affixed at that intersection. For additional information, click here.
