Removal of 3-way stops on Raynham Avenue
We, the undersigned, feel strongly that the 3-way stop signs implemented on Raynham Avenue are unnecessary and create more problems than they solve. We feel that the two intersections affected have become more unsafe since their implementation due to the increase in traffic conflicts and a decrease in situational awareness and what used to be a safe and seamless commute along this avenue now requires one to stop and determine who has the right-of-way twice for two intersections with very low levels of congestion. We feel that this road does not have enough congestion requiring 3-way stops to alleviate and that the new signage was implemented in haste without justification. We have witnessed an increase in near-collisions at these intersections that would not have been an issue prior to their implementation. We strongly urge the Town of Gander to remove these stop signs and return to a normal, safer operation.
