Perfect Solution To 4-Way Stop Headache

After five days of monitoring how motorists dealt with a new four way stop at Midland’s King and Elizabeth streets….the town and police have come up with a perfect formula to deal with rolling stops, straight through speeders and drivers not certain what to do.  Solar powered blinking red stop signs are the perfect answer. Drivers can see the red blinking warning lights blocks away and so there is no excuse not to come to a complete stop before proceeding. The four way stops have been the number one topic on Midlanders’ lips and minds for weeks. Now all attention can be paid to next month’s always sensational Butter Tart Festival which promises to attract thousands to downtown Midland.  So good-bye Four Way Stop Head Ache and Hello, Butter Tart Festival!

  1. I still find having a four way on a main thoroughfare and a side street somewhat difficult to understand. I have driven most of Ontario and every province in this country and have never encountered something like this. Four ways on regular in town streets but not a main street and side street. The only safe solution is a sensor set of traffic lights where the light does not change from green on the main road unless there is traffic on the side street and then goes through the three phase process.with green on the side street for a shortened time. Many lights heading south on Bathurst Street from highway Nine to the GTA are like this.
