Can we have a stop sign to control speeding?
A stop sign is intended to determine the right of way at an intersection. It is a rather poor speed control device. Studies have shown that the effectiveness of a stop sign on speed ranges from 10 to 150 feet from the sign, after which a vehicle will regain its original speed or faster. If a speeding problem exists, the County can park a radar trailer on your street to inform drivers of their speed.
