Traffic enforcement to increase near Fort Huachuca

Posted: Updated:

The Sierra Vista Police Department has placed new street signs in the area of the Main Gate to Fort Huachuca informing motorists that it is illegal to block the intersection.

Police have received numerous complaints recently that during the early morning hours, vehicles at the Wilcox/Buffalo Soldier Trail and Fry/Buffalo Soldier Trail intersections have been proceeding into the intersection when traffic is backed up, blocking the intersection when the light turns red. The Police Department will be closely monitoring traffic in the area with the new signs in place, and remind motorists that if they stop within the intersection, they can be ticketed and face a fine of $95 plus court costs.
