Stop signs
by Kara (McElroy) Steele


January 22, 2005

I wrote on this before about all the un-necessary stop lights in town, but Dayle Amundson made an excellent point. The city is no longer a bustling metropolis as it once was 8-9 years ago, and all these stop lights are doing is causing more agitation to drivers than good.

Keep the ones that the city feels are a necessity, and get rid of the rest. Good grief I have NEVER seen such a small city on an island with 30 miles of road (both ways included) have so many stop lights!

This city of Kenai to which I migrated to has them because there are a lot more people and the area is more spread out for it. Without them it would be a disaster. But Ketchikan, is just a nice little community that doesn't need all that drama.

Great point Dale, I hope someone with the City of Ketchikan is listening! Peace and love to all my friends and family still there.
