Councillor calls for stop sign at Murray St. and Patricia Blvd.

Six instances this winter of cars ending up in the same front yard have Ward 5 city councillor Andrew Marks wanting a stop sign at the 90-degree corner where Patricia Blvd. becomes Murray St.

One time, a car hit the homeowner’s fence.  Another just touched a utility pole.

Marks has another example, from going to see for himself.

“As I was approaching, coming up Murray to Patricia, I had to actually stop at the location of the corner, because a vehicle was coming down Patricia and cutting right in front,” he recounts.

“And a stop sign could be a way to slow traffic down, make it safer for people entering and exiting the walking trail that has a major exit and entrance right there.”

In other parts of Ward 5, Marks wants flashing red lights after 6:00pm on Kirby Ave. and Pine St., as sell a stop sign on Sixth Ave., between Pine and Mountjoy.  He’s suggesting at Balsam or Birch.
