Tired of driving through Mashpee Commons only to get stuck behind double-parked vehicles outside of Starbucks, the Bank of America ATM, post office, or the movie theater? Had enough of almost being struck by vehicles cruising through stop signs and crosswalks at the popular retail, office, and residential center?
The Mashpee Police Department feels the same way.
Last Saturday morning, April 12, in the span of 55 minutes, 12 drivers were given verbal warnings for failing to obey the stop sign at the intersection of Steeple Street and North Street near Starbucks and The Gap.
Mashpee Police Chief Rodney C. Collins said that visitors to Mashpee Commons can expect more traffic enforcement as the busy summer season approaches, and beyond.
“There have been civil infractions as far as the rules of the road at Mashpee Commons. We are aware of such violations and we have focused attention on getting drivers to comply with the rules, specifically stop sign violations. There will be future enforcement patrols, which will also include double parking,” Chief Collins said.
