Letter: Decorations by the railroad tracks

Published 8:35 pm Wednesday, March 7, 2018

I am writing in regards to the new stop signs placed by the railroad tracks on Washington and South Pearl Street. I didn’t realize these were for decoration rather than safety.

The Jeep in front of me drove right through, I stopped and was almost rear-ended by the guy behind me. And as I made my left turn and looked in my rear view mirror, he drove right through and also gave me the one-finger wave. I want to thank him for the wonderful start to my day.

It’s not the first time I have seen people drive through, as a matter of fact I don’t recall seeing anyone stop for it. Did the law change for stop signs, or are they different for signs at railroad crossings?
