Now maybe they will make that road go over the track like they said they were going to do years ago. I always cross on the road to the east where you can see.

Re: Hobbies Tib Bits - From Indiana

totally agree Illinifarmer,

 

Funny how we build for yesterdays traffic patterns instead of tomorrows.

 

And that irony is trumped by the drivers who, at an unmarked county intersection will perceive the danger and expect an accident until you put up stop signs, then a good % quit feel protected and won't look or stop.  Smiley Happy  Human nature........

SW....the stop sign does not prevent the accident....just gives you right to place blame after the next one!!!!!
