It is easy to overlook the role that certain traffic signs play. For example, stop signs serve an important function in regards to maintaining order on Wisconsin roadways. Failure to obey such signs can have devastating consequences. In fact, police believe that a driver who failed to stop at a stop sign caused a fatal car accident.
The accident happened just before 8:30 a.m. one morning in August. A pickup truck driven by a 47-year-old man and a highway department truck driven by a 35-year-old man were involved. Reports indicate that the highway department employee was hauling recyclables at the time of the accident.
