Alerting motorists to pedestrian crossing: Stop painted on pavement

2017-09-26 - W Court and 1st Street, Greensburg, KY - Photo by Linda Waggener,
Many of Columbia's neighboring cities have innovated to move traffic at higher volume, though at slower speeds, adding cautionary visual cues to alert drivers to watch for pedestrians. In Greensburg, KY, at West Court and 1st Street, a "STOP" sign on the pavement provides an alert for drivers. Granted, this is a city street, which makes it snap to provide the roadway signage, many communities are finding that Kentucky Transportation Cabinet is receptive to ideas to make travel safer for all. The city also has another added protection for pedestrians: On street parking on both sides of the street, adding to the viability of downtown businesses.
