    Sorry Patriotic Citizen, 164 & 97 is not a four way stop.

    I go through that intersection almost daily and I can tell you that too many people do not stop at the four-way stop.

    “Where is law enforcement on the Autobahn of Alabama?”

    Probably in Alabama. (164 and 97 are in Florida.)

    Law enforcement has no control of people’s bad driving habits
