Not a 4 Way Stop

Original post made by Stella, Downtown, on Jan 10, 2014

Please people learn to drive and read street signs. The intersection at W. Angela @Peres is NOT a 4 way stop. It is just stopped traffic for those traveling on angela street. Yes there are crosswalks on all corners but no 4 way stop. There have been more accidents since they put in all four crosswalks then there was when there were none.

come on city of P-town streets-Mike T-just make it a 4 way stop and then we all will be happy-especially those that have been stopping now thinking it's a 4 way stop. My horn is almost worn out from people stopping on Peters and there is no one in the crosswalk and no stop sign.

It should be a 4 way stop because of the foot traffic and it's hard to see north on peters when traveling west on Angela. Now that we have our first 3 story condos going up on that corner it will be even worse.

@jake

Totally agree. If any intersection needed to become a 4-way stop that is the one. I live right above it on Peters and every Saturday morning and every downtown event its a dangerous place to be. I hear brakes squealing and people yelling all the time. I have almost been hit there myself many times when people think I have a stop heading down Peters and they gun it causing me to hit my brakes.

It would also help the congestion around the entrance to the BofA parking lot which is another accident prone area.

I agree it SHOULD be a 4 way stop and the city doesn't think so. I live on w. angela and refused to cross there-when driving. I cut over to Rose/Neal and cross there. much safer. too many squeal of brakes.

In general, seems like a LOT of folks could benefit from a driver's ed course...stopping at right turn yields, stopping 15 feet back from the crosswalk - I've noticed this a lot with what appears to be new foreign drivers...what driving school is teaching that?? But most of all - showing a little courtesy even if it will slow you down by 5-10 SECONDS - allowing a driver to complete backing out of a parking space before you have to zoom around them - with the extra long trucks and SUV's parked next to you, you can't see around them until you are about 25% pulled out, then on the other side, a stupid pedestrian will walk right behind you, or a driver will just not be able to wait. What I don't get, is that, at one time or another we have all been in that situation; none of us have two sets of eyes, yet there is so much selfish discourtesy and honking so that you won't be incovenienced. Be Pleasant in Pleasanton - life will be better and safer for all.
