The city has bigger issues, but the mess created at one corner in Rego Park reflects a lack of common sense quite well.
New stop signs went up on 63rd Avenue at Wetherole Street last week. But there was no warning, no line in the street, just new signs largely hidden by cars until you’re right on top of them. During two one-hour periods on Friday and Monday, cars blew by them at a rate of one every two minutes. Cops who might have warned drivers were instead parked at their usual spot, another stop sign, two blocks away. Warning signs finally went up days later.
How about avoiding chaos next time by erecting the warning signs at the same time as the stop signs?
