A tragic accident occurred between two vehicles in Wyoming. While approaching a stop sign, a driver did not stop, which led for their vehicle to collide with the vehicle of Douglas M. Scholl, who was driving on U.S. Highway 30. Scholl, a forty-eight-year-old, passed away at the place of the accident. The other driver involved in the accident, a twenty-eight-year-old, was taken to get medical treatment at a hospital.
It is required by law that drivers stop at stop signs. When a driver fails to stop at a stop sign, not only are they breaking the law, but they are putting the safety of themselves and the public at risk. Not stopping at stop signs can result in several consequences, such as hefty ticket fines or getting into a collision. In addition, drivers who do not stop at stop signs are often more likely to be engaging in other acts of reckless driving, such as speeding and driving distractedly- all of which are among the top causes of vehicle accidents.
