Extra patrols, tickets, needed in Princeton

Where are the city police when you need them? Very seldom do I see them doing their job when I’m in public. Two particular areas needing patrol are the Walmart and Kroger parking lots. People speed through them so fast they nearly run over you. People park in the fire lane and in the handicap spots without a (handicap) card in the window, and tie traffic up so bad in front of the stores you can barely get by. Another area that is ignored is the intersections. People run through red lights, turn on wrong lights, and even sit in the intersections. These offenders need to be given a ticket and not a warning. So come on Princeton Police Department and do your job. Because apparently you haven’t been.
