One Intersection; Eight Drive-Throughs

The stop sign design currently used in English...                                      Image via Wikipedia
This is a follow-on to my red-light runners post.

There's a certain Regina guy whose house is at the end of an intersection. He's had eight errant drivers run past the stop onto his property; the latest rammed his girlfriend's car and pushed it into his garage door.  The perp left without leaving his name and number.

Regina city councillor Mike O’Donnell summed up the issue this way:  “If everybody stopped at the stop sign and drove at a reasonable speed through this residential area, we wouldn’t be having this conversation.”

Lawful driving is a civic courtesy and a commendable thing.

And that's the way the Ball bounces to a stop, and then proceeds cautiously through the intersection.

I've seen a couple of strategically places boulders cure that problem
