There was one by the frowndabout that got hit so often and replaced (>4x) the city gave up and just removed it for good. RIP.



I'll bet the kids are mowing them over on purpose and legal pot isn't helping the driving around town either.

Pot use has ZERO do do with the driving in the neighborhood.

Folks, no magic little purple pill is gonna keep those signs fully erect!

The one on Skyline and Canyon Rd was an incredibly stupid place to put it. Coming south from Trousdale freeway exit onto Skyline, if tried to make a left onto Canyon Rd, the sign was in such a place that it was practically impossible to move into the left turn lane onto Canyon, thereby making the cars behind you wait. It was a matter of time before a car would hit it. All Bruce Dickinson has to say is I'm glad it wasn't one of my Ferraris!

Seriously, don't pop up a bunch of cheap signs in the name of improving pedestrian safety, but not thinking about whether vehicular safety is at all compromised. Spend some real dough to make a crosswalk safe if it really is an issue. At the Skyline/Canyon location, would make a whole lot more sense to have a flashing light crosswalk that would be more visible whether it's at high noon or at 12 midnight.

At least 12 people per month walk across Skyline at Canyon. I think more coyotes and deer cross than people.
