Who's Looking Out for Your Safety? ATM is!

Traffic from Right and Left Does Not Stop
at 4th and Orange.
If Media Borough is not going to put up stop signs at 4th and Orange, then there is no reason not to put up a sign that alerts drivers that traffic (perpendicular) from the left and right does NOT STOP.  It's only a matter of time before someone get hurts here, or worse: because this intersection isn't properly marked.   About 6 months ago, I nearly got clipped here myself and I'm very aware of the danger at this location.

Get it done, Media Borough!  This intersection has been like this for years, with no good reason why better signage can't be put in place.

  1. It's a state road. Contact Penndot!

  2. Regardless of who owns the road, there are warrants that must be satisfied (i.e. A traffic study) in order to justify a stop sign. Why not put a stop sign on every corner? Because they likely don't meet warrants. Many of those in existence today probably don't meet warrants either. Further, those warning signs about cross traffic must conform to other standards. Come on. A candidate for local office in PA should know this stuff. It's not a bulletproof position.

  3. PENNDOT should do a study for you, but Wusinich should have the accident data and traffic counts... If he's worth his salt.

    I think Orange is a state road. I think that is why Orange is not blocked during the street festivals and Dining Under the Stars. In this case that is probably why the Borough cannot control addition of Stop signs along Orange. Within the Borough's control would be any signage along the numbered streets such as fourth.
