    1. That’s a Dodge Challenger, not a Dodge Charger
    2. When are we going to start taking people’s drivers’ licenses away for this stuff?

    As a fairly recent “immigrant” to St George, I’m going to have to play devil’s advocate for a second. The streets in the older parts of the city are so extra-wide that a stop sign isn’t in the field of view, as it would be on more modern streets. It’s way off to the side. Nonetheless, there IS the white stripe going across the pavement as well. Anyway, I’m extra paranoid when driving around that part of town, thanks to what I read on this site!

    What if this had been a motorcyclist? The woman was probably on her cell phone.

    Some signs are really hard to find, do to overgrown tree branches, for example the one on Sunset in front of that bike shop. I made the City aware of it and they did nothing. I even showed them picture… 🙁

      It’s the city’s job to make sure that the stop signs & other signs are clearly visible. If you are in an accident I have heard that u can get the city in trouble for that accident
