Yet another 4-way stop takes effect this Friday

Yet another 4-way stop coming Friday.

Yet another 4-way stop takes effect this Friday, this one at Plainfield Avenue and Randolph Road.

While the 4-way stop at West 9th and Arlington seemed quite appropriate given that there was a fatal accident at that corner, many of the others in recent months just seem annoying and seem to lack the same justification.

One other thing that I have noticed is the seeming disparity in how these are being apportioned: Most of the new 4-way stop appear to be in the 3rd  and 4th Wards,  with a few in the 2nd Ward.

So why has the 1st Ward escaped attention on this front. Surely there must be stretches of Front, Second or Third Streets that could benefit from 4-way stops.

Fair is fair, no?
