Letter: Intersection remains dangerous

Another serious accident on Kino and Roosevelt.

What is it going to take to make this corner a four-way stop? If the city is waiting for someone to be killed, I have a feeling it won't take too much longer. I myself have been run off Roosevelt because Kino drivers think it's a four-way stop.

This is also the corner where children wait for a school bus. Come on, wake up, we who live at the KOA really want people to be safe driving in our neighborhood.

Kino & Roosevelt should be a 4-way stop. There are several blind spots, especially when the truck is parked in the driveway on the corner - you stop behind the stop sign but must inch out far enough to see past the vehicle & you are practically in the middle of on-coming vehicles. On the opposite side there are trees that block views. This is also an area where children go for a bus stop. A 4-way stop would also help slow down those drivers that insist on going well above 25mph.
I live in this area and this intersection is a problem.

@ justa citizen,
Uh, you can't make a left turn on Stockton from Beverly in either direction. Well, I suppose one could but it would be illegal so, yes, it would be "interesting" to see you try!

To the first comment, Yes, Roosevelt has a stop sign at the Gordon cross but on Kino the stop sign is on Kino. The people on Roosevelt have no reason to stop.

The intersection is 100 years old, the area isn't growing so what makes you think that it's suddenly going to get so dangerous that deaths are going to occur there? Be safe no matter where you drive, common sense and paying attention is all you need!

roosevelt is the through street, kino has the stop signs. i live in this neighborhood, i know the streets and it is a dangerous place because people in this town dont know how to drive properly.

Or maybe.........KPD could spend less time trying to catch people going 35 in a 30 on Louise (out in the middle of open country) and instead, park a unit near the corner and get some stop sign runners!

It's very simple. People in this town need to 1) Learn to drive. 2) Follow the law. It's really that simple.

ARS 28-771

It doesn't help that people like to make up their own rules and wave people on at stop signs. That's not what the law says. It's not what should be expected.

Perhaps, just maybe, possibly...Now this is wild idea, so bear with me here...Maybe individuals should learn to drive and obey traffic control devices. (such as the stop sign?) I know, that is quite a stretch for this town. Why follow the guidelines established by the law when you can just make stuff up on the fly? Four-way stops are worse than two-stops. Nobody seems to understand the concept of ARS 28-771. "Vehicle at intersection exception entering freeway
A. When two vehicles enter or approach an intersection from different streets or highways at approximately the same time, the driver of the vehicle on the left shall yield the right-of-way to the vehicle on the right. This subsection does not apply to vehicles approaching or entering an uncontrolled "T" intersection if the vehicle on the left is on a continuing street or highway and the vehicle on the right is on the terminating street or highway. The vehicle on the terminating street or highway shall yield to the vehicle on the continuing street or highway." They just act like they are duly authorized law enforcement officers and wave people on willy nilly.

Need I continue? Learn to drive. Follow the law. It's that easy.

@JA Lope - I've used Gordon @ Airway multiple times every week for years. Never seen anyone run stop signs there, let alone any accidents.

why would roosevelt need a 4 way stop, roosevelt is not a through street. Kino is a through street. Maybe the fools on Roosevelt need to learn to not run stop signs. something i see, normally on any given day up and down Kino or Gordon. even on airway for that matter.

You can't fix stupid.

People don't pay attention when driving. They are too busy eating or texting or playing with their Ipods or the GPS unit and talking on the phone.

That intersection is far from one of the worst ones in Kingman.

What about the intersection at Beverly and Stockton Hill Road. It is very confusing and making a left hand turn is an interesting experience to say the least.
