How can I get a stop sign on my street?
The City's Public Works Department evaluates an intersection, following State and Federal guidelines, to ensure uniformity in traffic control. The survey includes reviewing the following criteria:
• Vehicle and pedestrian volumes
• Traffic speeds
• Visibility (sight distance) at the intersection, i.e., trees, shrubbery, and curves
• Accident history

Experience has shown that improving the intersection visibility by prohibiting parking near the intersection or removing other sight distance obstructions, is often more effective in reducing traffic accidents.
