Ignored sign

August 30, 2006

To the editor:

Help! On University Drive at Emery Road, there is a three-way stop. Many cars, driving from Iowa Street, simply zip through the intersection without even pausing. Must we wait until a pedestrian is hit before drivers learn the meaning of stop? Does anyone care?

I drive by that intersection all the time, and if I remember correctly, isn't there a tree or bush obstructing a clear view of the sign until just before you get to the intersection?

It's been a while, but last time I drove through there -- yes, the sign was obscured.

I guess the City could just remove the stop sign and solve the problem.

Alternately, much like Swartz north of Sixth St., the City could just prohibit turns onto University from Iowa (and keep the fools from blocking traffic on the arterial Iowa St.), leaving University Dr. only for egress onto Iowa for locals.
