  1. We live right by here and there are near misses at this intersection all the time!! People need to slow down! Maybe the city should put in a traffic light.

  2. Traffic light just means some people will speed up to make the light. If we are serious about the safety of our residents and the children who walk to and from school on Memorial and throughout the city, the only reasonable (and cheapest and most effective) solution is to use stop signs. That way everyone has to stop.

    1. I've probably seen about the same amount of people roll stop signs as run red. I've never seen police enforce rolling through a stop sign - may be they should.

  3. I agree. But rolling through a stop sign going 5-10 is better than going 30 trying to beat a light
