Area STOP sign feeling useless after the first month

Saint Louis -- A STOP sign was installed at the request of a garage, who use a side street and fenced lot to store trucks waiting for repairs.

"I feel like a failure. The Stop here is unnecessary, and only one in 100 cars stop. Many of these drivers have been driving this route for years without stopping here.Yet, I am trying to provide safety to those people working at the garage."

Police know the sign is there, but do not have the time to check this low trafficked area. The cars that come along know to slow down to yield to cars getting off the freeway. "Only if there was a crash here would it come into play," said Officer Jones who patrols Broadway a block East of here.
