Ridgewood signal division workers recently replaced a missing yield intersection traffic sign, but posted a stop sign in its place. That was not a mistake, village officials said.

But seeing the familiar red and white octagonal sign in the unfamiliar location, at the intersection of California Street and Heights Road, alarmed many motorists who frequent the residential streets, Councilwoman Bernadette Walsh said at last Wednesday’s council meeting.

“Residents in the area were used to the yield sign, then they came home to find a stop sign there. They were concerned,” said Walsh, adding that the subject was scheduled to be addressed at the next Citizens Safety Advisory Committee session.

  1. There is another one by Hawes school ,not many people stop for it. Is it legal?

  2. Stop Signs that ask you to stop…. I thought you needed an ordinance to make it a legal one to “tell you to stop”?

    Big story of the day………..??????

  3. No photos from Boyd???

  4. Residents were “alarmed” at a stop sign? Why – because they weren’t consulted?

  5. Collaborate and Listen
