There are very strict requirements the City must follow in order to install a stop sign. Usually, residential areas will not meet these criteria. A better solution in residential areas is for neighborhood traffic calming, which is the installation of physical devices that force traffic to drive more slowly in residential areas.

These signs are not recognized in the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control (MUTCD), which the City must follow when installing traffic control devices. These types of signs are particularly ineffective to solve the conditions usually associated with this request. Traffic calming is a much more effective way to deal with this condition.

Yes, all you need to do is to send a letter with this request to Traffic Services along with a note from your doctor stating that you are handicapped and a rough map of the area you would like designated. The location will be reviewed. If there is a conflict with your chosen location, a compromise solution will be arranged. The sign will be installed at no charge to you.
