I have lived in my house for over 25 years. My road has always had two stop signs one at each end with none in between. That is until a couple months ago. The put a stop sign up right at the corner by my house. I hate it being there. I ran it twice after it went up because I couldn't get used to it being there. I've seen other people run it too most likely for the same reason.
Well an accident was bound to happen sooner or later. One evening at the end of August I heard a loud bang and then Duke started barking like crazy. I went outside and sure enough there was a car sitting at the stop sign with the front end smashed in.
There was a pick up truck parked on the side of the road past the stop sign. I'm assuming that the truck was at the stop sign, possibly just pulling away when the car came up behind it and not paying attention slammed into the back of the truck. I don't think anyone was hurt but for one little accident they sure had enough emergency vehicles there.
