Letter: New four-way stop should include lighted signs

Published on November 24, 2017 1:36PM


I’m glad to see that there will finally be a four-way stop on Feedville and Edwards. But one thing needs to be added: The stop signs with the flashing lights should be used. There will be fewer excuses for drivers who still run the signs to use. It makes the visibility excellent for daylight and nighttime driving. One life saved is worth the cost.

While I’m at it, I would also like to suggest the same signs with cross walking flags, crossing lights and crossing lanes available for pedestrians. When a pedestrian needs to cross Highway 395 safely, where there is no crossing within a block of normal traffic crossings, this allows a safe place to cross with a shortened time for flow of traffic. This is better than issuing crosswalk tickets or vehicles hitting people. Just a thought.
