I live on the unit block of East Thompson Avenue, and since April 7th my parents and other neighborhood residents have noticed a group of stop signs near Cold Springs School/Cold Springs Drive. These stop signs have been annoying them and I can understand why.
The stop signs are definitely a good idea for safety purposes, and to try and slow down the traffic near Cold Springs School.
The minor issue I have with this is that from what I know, none of the residents throughout the City were warned about the traffic signs, and this can also lead to them being driven past without a second thought if the driver is not careful.
This can also lead to many inconveniences for certain drivers since they would need to constantly come to a complete stop when at these locations. I think that a good solution would be to have another sign below the stop signs that tells the hours where it is mandatory to stop, which probably be during school hours.
Thank you for taking the time to read this letter.
