Visitors to the town of Mountain View are greeted by this sign (and a speed limit sign immediately after) on Depew Street near West 44th Ave. on Sept. 25, 2017. Mountain View, whose population numbered 528 as of 2016, is facing a proposed ballot measure that seeks to change who receives funding from traffic citation and speeding violation payments. The residents proposing the initiative say such fines should be routed to charities rather than law enforcement and city coffers, as is current practice; such a method would reduces the incentive for what residents call excessive enforcement of traffic violations.Photo by Andy Colwell for the Gazette
