Coventry is falling behind in highway maintenance and it could contribute to accidental death or dismemberment. Accidents happen, but the community recognizes that fact and invests money on traffic control signs as a preventative measure. The investment however is compromised if the signs are not properly visible.
A recent drive from Main Street to South Street on Cross Street was troubling and potentially dangerous. The street where G. H. Robertson School is located, a street where safety should be of particular concern, sight lines for safety signs are compromised and in some cases rendering the signs nearly useless.
Below are pictures of what a driver’s experience may be as they proceed along Cross Street. Not all drivers are familiar with the street and these signs are there for safety reasons, signs paid for and installed with our tax dollars. These are not the only signs in town with sight line issues. This is only one example near a school on a highly traveled road and it should have some priority and attention paid to it.
