Typically, it is the policy of the Engineering Department to refrain from adding stop signs to existing neighborhood intersections because stop signs are to be used based on traffic counts and accident data. Stop signs are not good traffic calming devices in neighborhoods where speeds are already designated to be 25 mph. Also, too many stop signs in a neighborhood may condition drivers to practice unsafe habits like “rolling” through intersections. If stop signs are to be installed, an analysis by the Engineering Department must be completed beforehand. Any recommendation would need to be taken to the Public Safety Committee and Public Works & Highway Committee for approval prior to installing the signs.
