Stop sign stop

Eagle Police were on routine patrol around 7:30 p.m. when they observed a truck driving westbound on Fifth Street fail to fully stop at the stop side before turning on to Capitol Street.

The officers stopped the truck when it turned left onto Brush Creek Road. One of the officers introduced himself to the driver and explained the reason for the stop. The driver apologized for running the stop sign and said that he was in a hurry to pick up his children. He provided his driver’s license, registration and proof of insurance and noted he didn’t want to receive a ticket.

After clearing the driver through dispatch, the officer returned to the vehicle and advised the man he would be ticketed for failure to stop at a stop sign. According to the police report, the driver then became argumentative. He told the officer he had a clean driving record and he shouldn’t get a ticket.

The officer told the driver he could either go to Eagle Municipal Court to argue the ticket or he could pay it by mail and reduce the points charged against his license from 4 to 2. The man said he did not agree with the citation and told the officer the ticket would ruin his clean driving record.

At that point, the second officer approached the vehicle and said the citation was not up for discussion. The driver said he was just pleading his case, shook his head and signed the ticket. The report said the man then stated he hoped that the police had something better to do than waste his time and the taxpayer’s money. He then wadded up his copy of the citation and threw it on the dashboard of his vehicle.

The officers advised him to drive safely and wear his seat belt.
