n a move sure to cause panic, the American Society of Uniformed Traffic Police Officers (ASUTPO) has
recommended strict enforcement of DO NOT PASS signage.
Citing the dramatic rise in traffic problems, the ASUTPO has recommended that all of it's 5,000 member agencies nationwide begin enforcing the signs starting this September.
In a recent poll, the ASUTPO concluded that few drivers paid any attention at all to the signs, most driving right by them without even the slightest hesitation.
Surprisingly, most driving schools skip over the rules pertaining to the Do Not Pass signs, or they
teach an improper interpretation of them (having to do with passing other vehicles) that stemmed from an error in the 1956 NY Drviers manual.
All drivers should be aware that passing a Do Not Pass sign usually carries the same penalty as running a stop sign. When you come across a Do Not Pass sign, you are to stop your vehicle and not pass the sign.
