By David Reevely, Ottawa Citizen, July 2, 2017

Two stop signs will occupy some of city council’s time this week, the latest attempts to repair botched road designs with impotent street signs.

Both of these are in Orléans, but we’re starting to do this all over — reacting to resident’s complaints that their streets are unsafe by putting up stop signs and lowering speed limits, knowing that at best they’ll be ignored and at worst endanger innocent people who assume they’ll be safer than they really are.
