In his letter “Excessive number of stop signs in Hampstead contribute to pollution” (Letter to the Editor, The Suburban, 2017-8-16), Leslie Satenstein decries the brake and tire dust as well as unnecessary fuel use, occasioned by the large number of stop signs along Fleet/Van Horne, in Hampstead. His annoyance is likely shared by many motorists.
A similar situation occurs along the De Maisonneuve bike path in Westmount, affecting both cyclists and motorists. Annoyed road users are more likely to not come to a full stop when there are an excessive number of stop signs; once started on the slippery slope of breaking the law, they may flout the law elsewhere, which makes everyone (pedestrians, cyclists, and motorists) less safe.
