Urban Review put out a survey to readers recently asking if St. Louis had too many stop signs and the response indicated a majority of people believe that, yes, there are too many stop signs.
I understand how it happens, vehicle traffic increases in areas that have neighborhoods and residents petition the city for a stop sign. Problem is in many parts of St. Louis (city and bordering areas) no one in charge did much except agree to their placement which means some streets have them every 100 feet. This causes a continual go-stop-go-stop and no real traffic flow.
Jamison is one of those streets with stop sign after stop sign interspersed with a few stop lights. And McCausland as well. One spot on McCausland has two signs no more than 100 feet a part. The other day I happended to be driving north on McCausland and saw the southbound traffic backed up bumper to bumper from almost Skinker all the way to Manchester.
There has to be a better way, especially during peak drive times.
