Cars don't stop speeders
THE IDEA of police officers taking their cars home so they show a presence is silly. There are two Cape Girardeau Police Department cars that sit in driveways within a block of the intersection of Lisa and Grandview. This is probably the most run stop sign in town. There also are many cars every day that run over 50 miles per hour on Lisa.
