Sycamore Drivers Going Through Stop Signs in 1943
From the January 3, 2018, MidWeek "Looking Back."
1943, 75 Years Ago.
"Observation shows that many Sycamore motorists are becoming careless at the stop signs, following removal of much of the ice at the various intersections. When ice covered the streets, and there was a chance of becoming stalled at some of the street intersections, auto drivers became accustomed to driving past the crossing to avoid wasting gas to get going again.
"Now that most them approaches to the stop, streets have been cleared of the treacherous ice, it seems the auto drivers still cling to the former practice and drive through the stop signs, even if they delay traffic approaching from each direction."
