Safety for Pedestrians

Kudos on cutting down the high shrubs at the northeast corner of the East Drive/Haverhill Entrance intersection. Now, entering cars making a right can see approaching pedestrians, bicyclists, etc.
Three suggestions:
(1)Put a "Yield to Pedestrians" sign on the traffic divider of the intersection, specifically for cars making left-hand turns.
(2) Bringing the "Please Stop for Pedestrians" signs into compliance with state law, which mandates "Must  Stop for Pedestrians"? Not difficult: just paste a "Must" over the "Please".
(3) Repositioning stop signs and stop lines to stop cars before, not after, they cross the pedestrian walk.

  1. And now, how about cutting the shrubs lower coming out of Chatham at Ascot St. onto West Drive going to the west gate? They are too high to see oncoming cars going east.
