Controversial Stop Signs Coming Down

CAROLINA SHORES -- Carolina Shores' controversial stop signs aren't down yet, but they will be by the end of the week.

The town's Board of Commissioners voted 3-to-2 Tuesday afternoon to take down the stop signs on Carolina Shores Parkway.

The signs were put up more than a month ago, creating three-way stops at two intersections of the parkway.

The signs generated controversy and anger from some residents who said some people weren't paying attention to them.

"I'm going to say seven out of 10 will stop. That might be good, it might be bad. Some people stop, some people roll through it and some people as you just saw apparently drive right through it," says John Daugherty, a resident of Carolina Shores.

Town Commissioners will conduct a study of traffic patterns on the parkway through use of a computer tracker.
