Q. Over and over, I see drivers running a stop sign in a shopping center. I recently counted 28 cars in 10 minutes running the stop sign, near the Charter cable company’s store at the Food Lion shopping center in Carolina Beach. What can be done about this?
A. That stop sign is located on private property, so legally, not much can be done.
“Unfortunately the law does not give the authority for stop signs” on private property, said Carolina Beach Police Chief Kurt Bartley. “It only gives us the authority to write citations for hit and run, safe movement, DWI, reckless operation of a motor vehicle and other serious charges.”
