A motorist ran a stop sign in Spring Lake? What else is new? That happens all the time along with driving and using cell phones or texting or not using turn signals. What is needed is some real enforcement.

Usually the Spring Lake police are preoccupied with chasing cats up trees or finding lost dogs, does everybody know how much these keystone cops are being paid? Put anyone of them in Newark for a day and they will poop their pantys! LOL
