Residents of the Huron East community of Ethel want motorists to stop, even if only for a short time.
They're asking that a stop sign be placed at an intersection of a County road and a municipal road in the village, because of safety concerns.
Huron County Councillor Bernie MacLellan explains that many vehicles travelling on the municipal road simply roll through the intersection, because there is no stop sign.
He adds that visibility is restricted, because of buildings that are situated very close to the corners of the intersection.
MacLellan says he hasn't heard of any collisions or near-misses recently, but residents are worried about the safety of children in the area.
He points out that there has been an increase in the number of children in the Ethel area in recent years.
MacLellan says he heard the request repeatedly, while he was campaigning for re-election as Mayor of Huron East last fall.
He says the County has an obligation to allay residents' safety concerns.
