Road alert: New stop sign by Fred Meyer

Monday night a car was seen running a stop sign in front of Fred Meyer on NE 130th Street. The driver seemed to notice the red stop sign at the last minute and briefly hit the brakes in the middle of the intersection and swiveled his head around before letting off the brake pedal and continuing in an eastbound direction of travel.

Fortunately no one else was in the intersection at the time.

Usually we wouldn't write about a driver running a stop sign, but the sign on NE 130th at the intersection with 33rd Avenue NE in front of Fred Meyer is new and easily catches drivers off guard. The signs are also in an intersection busy with cars and pedestrians.

So next time you are running to the store for milk or bananas please pay attention to the new signs and avoid an accident.
