Letter: Highland Road Needs a Stop Sign
"It would be greatly appreciated on the behalf of my family and I, and others who are also concerned and struggling knowing when it’s okay to turn."
To the editor:
My family is currently living off of Highland Road, located in Minnetonka. Taking a turn out of this street is extremely dangerous and frightening due to the lack of ability to see if oncoming vehicles are coming from the left direction.
There is a large bend with trees that stick out as well, which makes for that lack of ability to see. My hope and goal would be to create some way to prevent possible accidents, or even death from this accident-prone situation. A stop sign, light, or form of sign allowing for traffic to stop for the cars turning out of Highland Road, would be ideal.
This would benefit not only to the city of Minnetonka, to all vehicles driving through this area, with their lives at risk. It would be greatly appreciated on the behalf of my family and I, and others who are also concerned and struggling knowing when it’s okay to turn. Having those of our community safe, and any other drivers safe would be the outcome of making this positive change to this area.
