HUMBOLDT A steep increase in traffic infractions has led to large signs alerting motorists of the upcoming stoplight in downtown Humboldt, said Shannon Moore, Chief of Police.
We had to do something, about the intersection of Ninth (old highway 169) and Bridge Street, Moore told city council members at their meeting Monday night.
In the first 40 days of the year officers have made 155 traffic stops and issued better than 30 citations, of which about half were for failure to stop for a red light, Moore said.
