Stop signs should not be used for speeding, pedestrian safety
Since I have been opposing three- and four-way stop signs in the parish for about 30 years, I might as well get my two-cents in concerning the proposed stop sign on Monsanto Street.
All federal, state and parish documents related to stop signs specifically state that stop signs are not to be used for speed control.
Is that so hard for anyone to comprehend?
If anyone would like to see a copy of these documents, I have copies.
I think Parish President V.J. St. Pierre realizes that there is a conflict with installing these signs and maybe a few council members feel the same way. I hope so.
Why is it so hard for a council member to say “no” when requested to install a sign for speed control?
At the last count I did, there are 62 illegal stop signs in the Mimosa Park area. Anyone who drives through this area knows what I’m talking about.
It’s very frustrating to go from Highway 90 to Lagatuta subdivision. I wonder how many gallons of fuel are wasted daily because of these signs.
And what about wear on brakes, tires and engine and nerves?
And all these signs have nothing to do with pedestrian safety. Streets are not built for playgrounds.
Monsanto is a shortcut to Primrose Drive because it has only one stop sign which is at West Heather. I can’t imagine why anyone would be upset with the traffic on that street.

Monsanto’s response to the World Health Organization (WHO) labeling its widely used weed killer, Roundup, as “probably” causing cancer in humans was swift – it’s junk science.
