Since 1978 according to one of twenty seven residents that signed a petition living on either w. Pine st or eighth st have been askingthe town council for a fourway stop sign at the intersection of eighth & West Pine With many good reasons all concering the saftey of the residents. All they get is delaying actions and excuses or we will try this or that. I my self had to jump over the hood of my car one morning when a lady on a cellphone and drinking a cup of something missed my car by only a few inches children that have to cross the street have almost been hit and the towncouncil just wants to put up a radar sign that has been proven not to work and has also been proven to intice people to drive faster. According to the town charter of 1946 paragraph 12 it is their duty to put safty first but they are afraid that people may be inconvenienced by it. A this hillbilly paper can't even get a story right when they do print something important they screw it all up and make it sound like a cartoon script. In just a few hrs. a day for two days according to the council they issued 39 speeding tickets in a 25 mph residential speed zone and even the school bus driver is in the habbit of pulling across the yellow line to make sure on comming traffic stops. There have been parked cars hit trees on lawns hit and only the town knows how many cars have slid onto fourth street because they were going to fast to stop on wet roads or snow. Someday someone is going to be hurt or killed and Let it be known the town council will be held accountable for their continued neglect of doing what needs too be done.

Why don't you just go to the towns traffic office and tell them what you need. What does the town council have to do with traffic signs. Do like someone did in Loretto. Just put a stop sign up to slow the traffic down. The stop sign I'm talking about comes out of a private driveway and serves no puropose. Go and look for yourself. I'm sure it was installed to slow traffic and discourage thru taffic. Probably installed by resident or politics. Stop sign should be removed. Serves no purpose.

Just send the construction company from main street over to pine street, they'll fix the road so you can't drive over 5 mph

Real good observation. Right on Mainstreet I sat and watched a cop talking on his cell phone run two red lights and what pisses me off most was the fact he ran them right in front of another cop setting at the lights.
