One of the busiest intersections downtown got new stop signs this morning creating a 4 way stop. Incase you can't tell, it's at 6th and Bullard. Residents have been asking for a long time that something be done about the crazy drivers and pedestrians, this should help.

A couple of months ago I ask both Town Manager Brown and Police Chief Reynolds to consider making Bullard and Broadway a 4 way stop, did seem like they liked the idea but it could prevent another fatality,

Some behavior guidelines:
At a four-way stop if two vehicles reach the intersection simultaneously, the vehicle on the left must yield the right-of-way to the vehicle on the right.
If you have arrived first at the intersection and a pedestrian steps into the crosswalk to cross in front of your vehicle, you must yield to the pedestrian using due care for his or her safety. Once that pedestrian is no longer in the crosswalk you may proceed. If other cars have arrived and were not affected by the pedestrian, and have already entered the intersection, then you must yield to the cars that are already in the intersection.
I appreciate this traffic calming response. Thanks to Messrs Brown & Ladner for initiating it.
