Ketchikan Community Courtesy

Sorry to be the one to have to do my civic duty here, really
do not have time. But everytime I drive by the corner of 3rd
and Jefferson Street, I am appalled at the HUGE 'Chevy 50' trailer,
seemingly on permanent status there, where it totally blocks
the stop sign. Now I am needing to teach my teenager how to drive,
and several times already almost went straight through on Jefferson,
being unable to see the stop sign. Everyone else's kids are also
learning to drive lately, and this 'Chevy 50' trailer parked
on the corner of 3rd and Jefferson is literally an ACCIDENT WAITING
Please, oh please - whoever
owns this van, will you please move it back into the center of
the block, at least? Somewhere where people can SEE the stop
One dark and stormy night,
with the wild winds blowing sideways snow, it could be YOUR kid
who goes straight through across Jefferson and gets broad sided
and killed, or maimed for life...
Thanks very much in advance for this small courtesy.
