Stop sign confuses drivers on Mt. Vernon Road

-A +A
Speaking of stupid stop signs in Auburn (Your Views, July 25), the ones they put in at the intersection of Mt. Vernon Road and Joeger Road are totally unnecessary. The yield sign worked quite well for as long as I can remember. There is not enough traffic at this intersection to warrant a three-way stop and it sucks up more gas when you accelerate from a complete stop. It is also confusing when cars on the Mt. Vernon Road don’t have any stop sign if they continue towards town but do have one if they are heading in the other direction. Check it out sometime. It is difficult to know what the traffic on Mt. Vernon Road is going to do when most don’t signal whether or not they are turning off on Joeger Road. Roger Perkins Auburn
