On Monday Radnor Township's Board of Commissioners approved a new stop sign for the intersection of Midland Avenue and St. Davids Road.
Currently there are stop signs at the intersection for those travelling on Midland, but the new signs are meant to slow down drivers on St. Davids, which connects Lancaster Avenue with the rest of the South Wayne neighborhood.
Cheryl Tumola said the new stop sign is needed because of the way people drive, but it would not be necessary if "people added two minutes to their schedules to allow for safe driving."
"We experience a good bit of cut through traffic along Midland if Lancaster is congested or individuals are in a hurry along to get their children to school," Tumola told Radnor Patch.
"Usually the cars have come along Orchard Way and make the turn onto St. Davids when they crest the hill they can see the color of the light. If it is green many, if not most, really accelerate in order to get there in time to clear the intersection even if their chance is slim," she said.
"Coming from Lancaster Avenue onto St. Davids Road is also perilous as east-bound cars accelerate and rarely leave a gap for turning vehicles so those drivers have to be very speedy and thus whip around the corner... [As] you are going up hill the desire to slow down and respect the neighborhood is negligible."
