T-Intersection with no traffic calming devices or signals.1 child killed and another injured by on coming traffic.
This is quite obviously an extremely dangerous intersection given the simple fact that a CHILD DIED because of the lack of a STOP SIGN. A child who was just riding their bike. A child who thought it was safe to do so. A child, like any other, who thought they were being looked after in their own neighborhood. A child who depended on the adults in his community to make sure that the roads were routed safely. Does the cost of installing a stop sign outweigh the life of a child? How many children need to be STRUCK DEAD at this intersection before the people in power PUT ONE IN? How many? 3? 5? 10? You tell me because this situation has been DEBATED way too long.......How many years will you be in the DECISION process? 5? 8? 10? At this point, I can only assume that a Stop Sign has not been installed yet because of other nefarious reasons that probably have nothing to do with this situation at all. Because putting one in has always been the right thing to do and there is NO REASONABLE excuse NOT TO DO SO. NONE!
My friends witnessed their child's hit & run & death. I feel that a stop sign there is absolutely necessary. No one should have to experience that. kathy moran-howe
