1) to not move, walk, etc., after doing so before 2) to cause (someone or something) to not move, walk, etc., after doing so before 3) to not do something that you have been doing before; to not continue doing something — Merriam-Webster
The Merriam-Webster definition is clear. But it’s equally clear that many West Hollywood drivers don’t know what that octangular red sign with the white letters S T O P on it actually means.
Data from the West Hollywood Sheriff’s Station shows most of the pedestrian accidents that have stirred outrage among local residents are the fault of motorists. If there’s any doubt just how obtuse drivers can be at stop signs, it is erased by a several dozen videos that Keith Cohn made on Kings Road near its intersection with Romaine.
Cohn, who lives on Kings Road, spoke at a recent City Council hearing on pedestrian safety and mentioned the safety issue there. He generously provided to WEHOville.com the video above and others below.
