Yelow signs on Long Common in Providence
« on: July 29, 2017, 01:12:42 PM »
The yellow signs on Long Common which say "Drive like your kids live here" looks very tacky and looks like an eyesore! I live on Long Common as well and of course I want people to drive responsibly but this makes the neighborhood look bad!

I honestly don't think that they are tacky.  I have seen the speeds that people drive down Longcommon.  It's crazy.  A child WILL get hurt if people don't slow down.

I think it shows that people in the neighborhood are concerned about their children.

Many people drive too fast down longcommon, with no regard for others. People often blast through the round abouts, YIELD MEANS SLOW DOWN AND LOOK!!! IF SOMEONE IS TURNING ON LONGCOMMON AND THEY ARE STOPPED FIRST, THEY HAVE THE RIGHT TO TURN!! COURTESY!!
Yes, the yellow signs are needed. If this dosent change behavior I wish the police to step up and ticket speeders.

While I agree people drive way too fast on Long common and the roundabouts are dangerous with people driving too fast and landscaping that blocks the view, the way the round about work is people in the roundabout have the right of way vs people going into the roundabout.  So person on the left has the right of way, if you are entering from long common or one of the feeder roads, you must stop till the round about is clear.  If that means you stop and wait for 10 cars, you stop and wait for 10 cars.  That is why the yield sign in on the main roads entering into the roundabout, you are to yield to on comping traffic.  It's a round about, not a 4 way stop

I also don't think the signs help, but have no problem with them being up.
