For five decades there existed a four-way stop sign at the intersection of Southwest 148th Drive and 82nd Avenue.
Traffic proceeded in a mostly civil and controlled manner, and people could make their way to and from Coral Reef Park and Coral Reef Elementary School. But that all changed on Sept. 9th when the bureaucrats summarily snatched away the stop signs going north and south on Southwest 82nd Avenue.
Overnight an expressway was created, right through the heart of a small neighborhood and on a narrow, curving street with houses set close to the road.
Now we can’t get to the park, we listen to speeding cars from 6 a.m. on and our road is being broken down because cars are driving over drainage grates. We need a simple solution: Put back the stop signs. No excuses.
