Altoona (WQOW) -- After numerous close calls, city officials have installed over a dozen new stop signs at previous intersections in Altoona.

If you drive by Spooner and Bartlett avenues, you'll notice more stop signs are already up.

Altoona Police Officer Tim Peterson said there were lots of uncontrolled intersections along Spooner Avenue and Bartlett Avenue, which is near the Altoona High School and Intermediate School.

Peterson said the stop signs went up last week. The police department hopes the signs will fix some of the issues they've had in those areas.

"It's been uncontrolled intersections forever," Peterson said. "We've had so many horrible crashes, so many close calls in that area. Stop signs were needed to help get people to slow down in the residential areas so nobody gets hurt."

Peterson said if someone does drive through a stop sign they could get a ticket up to $200.
