Neighbors spell ‘stop,’ not ‘yield’ Page 1 of 2 |

Neighbors spell ‘stop,’ not ‘yield’ Page 1 of 2 | Some neighbors on Jennings Street in Point Loma have thought for over a decade that traffic was speeding through their neighborhood at unacceptable speeds. Dating back to 2000, they asked the city for stop signs to slow the marauders, and the city always said no. A yellow “yield” sign was the best the city could do, the engineers said. Then last July, a stop sign appeared. And another. Who put them in? Not the city. A vigilante sign installer put up the signs, flying in the face of the law. And what do you know — it worked.
Do it yourself speed laws.  HOAs do it all the time on private streets. Here, the neighbors do it on public streets.
