STOP sign is just be­ing ig­nored

Drogheda Independent - - NEWS -

IT has been raised a few times but there still seems to be no ac­tion be­ing taken with the STOP sign on Con­sti­tu­tion Hill.

Legally, when ap­proach­ing the Cord Road, go­ing up the hill, you are sup­posed to stop, never mind yield to traf­fic al­ready on the Cord.

But cars con­stantly just drive straight through the junc­tion, with­out even look­ing to the right to see if any­thing is com­ing.

It does not help that it’s al­most a blind junc­tion, as you have to al­most go past the STOP sign to see around Sars­fields.

Ob­vi­ously, the is­sue is that peo­ple don’t want to have to stop and get go­ing again on this steep hill and that makes to­tal sense.

The coun­cil need to re­ally look at the is­sues here be­fore there’s a ma­jor ac­ci­dent.
