Meeting on Millcreek Road, Stoney Batter Intersection

Joe,
I won't be at meeting but I am concerned.
Living off Millcreek Road, I drive through the intersection, usually more than once a day, and have worried that those crashing the stop sign coming down Stoney Batter Road or those turning left onto Stoney Batter from Millcreek will fail to yield and hit me.
The latter happened in 2003 and my Subaru was totaled by a PT Cruiser that failed to yield. The other driver was ticketed although she blamed me and we both went to the hospital. I was OK but shaken up and worried about bruising as I am on blood thinner. I was OK but she stayed in the hospital.
I think the intersection needs fixing but am concerned that if the yield is removed and those coming from my part of Millcreek must stop that it will be a pain during rush hour.
For the time being, I would like to see better policing at the intersection. A spotter at the intersection reporting by radio to police the license numbers of those crashing the stop sign (almost half do) to flag the offenders into the ball field parking lot to ticket them should cut the accident frequency down when word gets out.
When Steve Wood lived here, I believe they got speed traps set up in front of Heather Valley. I've seen cars driving 50 mph in the 25 mph zone.
Thanks for your time and the good job you are doing.
Regards,
Frank Logullo

Apparently not this one. Are you getting a little more senile as time passes? There's probably a pill for... what did you say?

I'm not senile. I can remember 1916 just like yesterday. Wasn't that the year when Myrtle got her bloomers in a twist cause Roosvelt wasn't fighting the Japanese enough?

I've seen the other follow up posts, this one slipped out from the wrong adress. That said, you sound like a concerned and safety minded citizen. I sure wish there were more good people such as your self. You have my respect.

I still remember the trauma of the accident. They have been thinking about changing this intersection for years. Joe is a good man and will get my comments included in the study.

ank posted for all of us...

Hello Mr. Logullo, I am Stoney Splatter Police Chief Nailem relying to your concerns.
I have checked into the accident records of the intersection you mentioned.
The stop signs you indicate that are in place must have been installed prior to my tenure as a warrant for them is not satisfied. What would you like done to improve this intersection? More signs, a blinking light or a state of the art traffic control system including preemption, walkways and man- hands? Reply with your decision as you are required to pay 75% of the cost. Other improvements made on the roadway may help offset the cost. We do not have the money in the budget at this time to accomplish this.
We are happy we were able to handle your crash in a manner suitable to you. We welcome these side jobs as it can be quite busy at times from: rolling up the sidewalks, burglaries, alarms, domestic disputes, aided cases, jaywalking, bad checks, credit card and INTERNET fraud, arson, moon shining, bar fights, drug usage, stolen livestock or vehicles and traffic violators.
I will have an officer monitor this intersection for violators and no officer discretion will be allowed.

May be tongue in cheek but would not surprise me what they do to the intersection.
They just finished redoing one a couple of miles from me. It looks like a 4 lane intersection but is designed for the intersection of 2 two lane roads. The roads go from two lanes to four about a 100 yards from the light, extend 100 yards past the light and narrow to 2 lanes. Would only make sense if they were going to widen at least one of the roads to four lanes.
Highway engineers here are the equivalent of the computer people that Obama hired to set up the Obamacare website.
