Another NC Stop!

'
Hi everyone, glad to be here! It's not the first stop sign when I leave my house, it is the second one. It is a memorable one! Memorable because I've lived in my house for 17 years. That particular main street into the subdivision was the right of way. The cross streets have all the stop signs. Well, they built a school a few blocks away about 8 yrs ago, then all of a sudden, put the stop sign up on the main thoroughfare! No notice, no "stop sign ahead warnings...nothing!!! I think I drove through it the first time...I mean, for 9 yrs it was just drive on through.

When I did notice it, I freaked and stopped in the middle of the street. Whew, no one was around so I didn't hit anyone...but geesh!!!

4-way stop on a major roadway! Yikes, the 3:30 rush hour must be rough!

You would think you'd get some type of notice about that kind of thing.

Usually it takes a few runover schoolkids for the city to put up stop sign warnings or rumble strips.

I like the bright yellow school sign next to it :)
