Janesville and Walworth Street Scream Disaster (by anon)

On the corner of Janesville and Walworth Street in Whitewater, there’s a two way stop – except from 7:00am to 8:00am and 3:00pm to 4:00pm, it turns into a four way stop for students walking to and from the university.  Most of the citizens know of the changes of the stop signs but those who don’t know of the changes is extremely dangerous.  Although people should always look for stop signs when they’re driving; many people will not double check if a two way turned into a four way if they do not pass through the intersection during the times of the changes.  Therefore, when people do drive during the hour that the intersection changes, they will not be looking for a stop sign and this causes many car accidents.  The town of Whitewater should change the two way stop into a permanent four way stop.  By changing the intersection into a four way will be safer for drivers and for students walking to school.

  1. So how many accidents have occurred at that particular intersection? Let me answer this one for you. NONE! We learn to hold hands, drink milk, eat cookies in kindergarten along with LOOKING BOTH WAYS before crossing the street. So take off those head sets!
