My six, three year old, and I wish to know what happened to the stop sign on 28th Ave. between 17th and 18th St. Rds–in Greeley, a stop sign in which law enforcement set a trap for us in late 2009? At the time, it cost our family of six $205.
Now…I stop where the stop sign use to be, wandering if some car will run into the back of mine? My kids do not know why local authority seems so very wishy-washy. I see dollar signs and a greedy city, when I check my vehicle’s mirrors, the bushes, and look for the pole where the stop sign use to stand. Instead of trapping decent citizens with a decoy stop sign, this educated man wonders if law enforcement should better spend their time monitoring the city’s investments so fireworks don’t cost taxpayers $100,000?
I do not know what to tell my young kids. I always considered law enforcement to be a great example of ethical actions, consistent laws, and a guardian of public safety. Through their actions, Greeley Police are asking me to second guess the importance of a stop sign in such a thoroughfare–to begin with. Furthermore, Local Police are leading me to wonder how many people have been treated like a sucker over this traveling stop sign, as I have? In fact, I had a member of the Tribune Staff use me as an example to poke fun at people in Greeley who do not think they need to completely stop at stop signs. I do not know how to justify being asked to not stop at the site I paid $205 for not stopping completely at (at the end of last year). To add to this entire ordeal, Greeley Politics has found a way to give me the finger in not only fleecing my pocketbook, but removing the very symbol I blew 45 minutes in court trying to argue was hidden in a grove of foliage and trees. The trees and foliage must have completely eaten the stop sign. It’s the only explanation I have to this wishy-washy example of public authority.
I can only hope the foliage and trees on that curve will be stopped up for awhile, no one will be hassled in front of their children over a fleeting symbol, and those previously fined can better picture what it is like to be in Greeley’s Ticket Twilight Zone.
