The Los Alamos Police Department is issuing notification to all motorists that the Los Alamos County Traffic and Engineering Department has established a new four-way stop sign intersection.
The intersection at Villa and 33rd Street, in front of Aspen Elementary School, has been converted from a two-way stop to a four- way stop. Officers will be out enforcing this new change.
A motorist approaching an all-way stop is always required to come to a full stop before a crosswalk or stop line. After a full-stop has been made, vehicles have the right-of-way to proceed through the intersection in the order that they arrived at the intersection. If vehicles arrive at approximately the same time, each driver must yield to the driver on their right.
LAPD also remind parents that there is no parking on Villa Street from 34th Street toward Aspen Elementary School/33rd Street on both sides of the street at the start and end of school.
