New city ordinance prohibits shortcuts
An ordinance passed by the Dickinson City Commission Monday prohibits taking shortcuts and avoiding traffic control devices, according to city documents.
Local businesses -- especially those located on corners near traffic lights and stop signs -- have complained of motorists zipping through their parking lots to avoid stop lights and signs, authorities said.
The activity will now cost motorists $20 and a point on their license, said Dickinson Police Capt. Dustin Dassinger.
