Street sign vigilante messing with rules of road in Maple Leaf
SEATTLE A street sign vigilante is messing with the rules of the road in Seattle’s Maple Leaf neighbo timberland shoes rhood.
“I saw what looked garbage bags or some kind of covering on the signs,” said Dave Myers.
Somebody placed large black garbage bags over “Do Not Enter” and “Dead End” signs on 103rd near the community pea patch, as first reported by the Maple Leaf Life blog.
Seattle’s Department of Transportation is not amused.
“You’re essentially creating oncoming traffic in an area where there shouldn’t be two way traffic,” said Rick Sherid timberland shoes an with SDOT.
But even the ‘Do Not Enter’ si timberland shoes gns don’t deter oncoming cars they see the sign and still go.
We saw drivers ignore the signs over and over and over again.
“We see them do that quite often, don’t see people paying attention to that sign,” said Michele Campton Stehr.
A block away, a street vigilante struck with another message a homemade ‘Do Not Enter’ sign stuck in concrete on a narrow road where there wasn’t one.
“There’s a right way to address concerns about traffic and bagging signs, that’s not the right way,” Sheridan said.
SDOT quickly took the sign down. It’s against state law to install your own traffic signs or bag the city’s, and it’s been awhile since Seattle has seen someone make their own rules of the road.
“Several years ago someone installed their own speed bump on a city street and the city removed that,” Sheridan said.
And in the same spot where someone dug a hole, the city now plans to place a one lane road sig timberland shoes n. A message back to the vigilante it’s not a one way and you don’t get your way.
I remember a while back in Georgetown where a bunch of stop signs had the words “don’t” and “believin'” added so it looked like the title of a certain song from Journey. Just glad they didn’t decide to just use “don’t” to match a Fleetwood Mac song. That could be disaster. 😉
Also, I’ve noticed in my neighborhood in recent weeks that some dumb dirtbag(s) have peen plastering these post its from the post office with these stupid drawings, probably gang symbols, all over every stop sign, bus sign, light pole, ect. where ver they could post their crap. The “people” (and I use that term loosely) that go around committing crimes, defacing property, and breaking rules like this, have ZERO fear of punishment.
