Residents Erect impromptu stop sign due to lack of action by authorities

When pleas fall on deaf ears, you take action. That is what the residents of Montes de Oca (San Pedro) did, erecting a makeshift stop sign at a very dangerous intersection.

Residents say they were forced to take the drastic action in the face of the lack of action by the municipality of Montes de Oca and the Traffic Engineering office of the MOPT.

Using sticks, stopes and red paint were used to make the impromptu stop sign to help reduce accidents.

The MOPT has a process for this. Its information center describes the process and touts seven offices dedicated to sign installation and maintenance. What the info does not say is the time it takes to get something done.
