Traffic stop is an ‘exercise in futility’

Make the intersection safer by keeping the stop signs on Seventh, with a flashing orange on Kawkawa Lake Road

Re: Traffic stop is an inconvenience, Letters (Sept. 5)

I totally agree with Patricia Gledhill that the new four way stop at Kawkawa and Seventh is an absolute exercise in futility.

It serves no good function what so ever. There were stops signs on Seventh Avenue both ways to begin with. To put in a four way stop only confuses drivers.

I’ve lived in Hope for over 10 years and this is the most dangerous I’ve seen that intersection.

If you want to make the intersection safer, keep the stop signs on Seventh, with a flashing orange on Kawkawa Lake Road.

Four way stops are accidents waiting to happen.
