From the Ask Joe file, we have a follow-up to a story from earlier this week about traffic violators caught on video.
Kevin Ashton had written in saying he videotaped dozens of cars running a stop sign at Damonte Ranch Parkway and Old Virginia Street.
He posted the video on YouTube and wanted to know what can be done about it?
The video Kevin posted on YouTube does show one car after another rolling through the stop sign. Kevin posted the video on YouTube, so other people would be able to see the situation for themselves.
After our story aired on Monday, Reno Senior Civil Engineer Bill Gall contacted us to say his staff had seen the story. Gall said they have already been working with the developer and NDOT. All parties have agreed to replace the Stop sign with a Yield sign, and they feel that is a better fit for the intersection. They also think it will make it safer, because pedestrians will not be expecting drivers to stop.
The change was approved by NDOT last week, so look for the new signs at the intersection very soon.
