A one way sign, a do not enter sign, and two no left turn signs – all to keep people from turning the wrong way onto Excelsior Boulevard at this 3/4 access near my office.
The left out from the cross street is blocked by a median protecting the left turn lane. I don’t know the history of the intersection, nor do I have turning movement counts, but anyone turning illegally here knows exactly what they’re doing. No sign is going to stop them if they want to turn left.
Signs don’t fix a situation like this. Either there isn’t a problem and the signs are a waste of money or there is a problem and the median needs to be extended a couple of feet with concrete (or plastic pylon tubes).
Just another small rant from a sign minimalist. We need to stop thinking this is ok.
I do agree! If they don’t get it with one, they’re certainly not going to understand more signs….
Do they actually drive across the median? Looks dangerous as heck to do something like that.
