In your last two editions there have been letters questioning the need for the two new stop signs.
I offer a couple of reasons why they were installed.
Firstly, there is a new subdivision of approximately 30 lots at the intersection of Ackerman/Esslinger.
Therefore there will be increased construction and residential traffic on Ackerman.
Secondly, as a volunteer driver of MOW, I know there are only two exits from the area- one on Riley Road to Wembley, where sightlines are good and traffic coming from the school is still at 30km/h.
Not so at Ackerman/Wembley. A left turn there is difficult for two reasons, firstly due to a curve on Wembley the sightline to the right is only 75 to 100 metres and secondly many drivers exceed the 50km/h speed limit.
I therefore conclude the signs were installed to lessen traffic accidents.
As a resident of French Creek who uses Wembley Road four times a week, I find the new stop signs a minor inconvenience.
