Road sign policies need to change

Editor,

This letter is in response to the countless issues and dangers that can be found on our county’s roads; the lack of regulations is appalling. On behalf of the many frightened drivers of Davis County, I would like to discuss how to improve the driving system. Thousands of accidents could be prevented through new, reasonable policies.

I have seen the carnage that can be wrought through the negligence of the government. I live on the corner of a Bountiful neighborhood intersection that has never been marked with anything such as a yield or stop sign. There have been many collisions right outside my door. One was serious enough to land a vehicle upside-down on my lawn, endangering a pregnant woman.

According to the “authorities,” we are not allowed to add any precaution signs to the intersection unless there is a long history of accidents in the area. This is madness. Why would the police choose to ignore the warnings rather than prevent future injury? I propose that we regulate more closely the use of cautionary signs at intersections based on the danger of the situation С not in a way that provides action after the damage, but to prevent these fatal occurrences in the future.

Janet Quist,

Bountiful

It is not really Law Enforcements fault, this issue needs to go through the City Council and the Streets department.
