Syracuse (WSYR-TV) -- It’s hard to stop at a stop sign when you can’t see it. That’s the problem on Tipperary Hill with overgrown trees and bushes blocking signs for drivers.
As you round the corner on Cayuga Street, there’s a stop sign, but you can’t see it.
“I know it’s there, but like I said, as we stand here I’d be very surprised if someone doesn’t blow through there,” said area resident Ralph Burn.
The concern grows every summer until the city decides to cut away at the problem.
On Friday, city DPW crews were driving around Tipperary Hill looking for stop signs that aren’t clearly visible, like the one at the corner of Burnet Park Avenue and Whittier.
Concerned drivers brought the issue to the mayor’s attention at a neighborhood meeting Thursday night.
Trimming a few branches is a quick and easy fix, but the city is asking for your help.
The city is asking you to help combat the problem by reporting problems to the DPW office. If you know of a stop sign that’s being obstructed, call 448-2489.
