Why can't we have more stop signs to control speeds on our streets?
Stop signs are warranted on the low volume approaches of intersections to clearly establish right of way. Use of unwarranted stop signs often leads to disregard of both those signs and others in the vicinity which may be more critical.

White Plains has recently purchased a speed display sign which can be used as an educational tool to help reduce speeds in the neighborhoods. The sign can be rotated among streets where more frequent violations occur. It temporarily displays individual vehicle speeds (for three seconds) while permanently displaying the 30 mph citywide speed limit.
