Lakewood Stop Sign Voted the “Dumbest in Dallas,” Wins Award From Fancy City Magazine

A co-working FrontBurnervian pointed us to Reddit yesterday, where some tech-savvy Lakewood residents were discussing the merits of a new stop sign.

The sign – at the intersection of North Brookside Drive and Tremont Street, adjacent to Lakewood Country Club – drew such reactions as:

- “What a waste! I think I ran it the other day, didn’t even realize it was there.”

- “best part is that within a day of them going up, there was a wreck because of the stop sign…”

- “Brookside sees traffic flowing in and out of the Hollywood Heights neighborhood during typical rush hour periods, but very few cars drive on Tremont, so the stop signs took people by surprise.”

Google Maps shows – pretty conclusively – that this probably isn’t an intersection worthy of a stop sign. Most likely the efforts of  an overzealous neighbor with a kid who just learned how to ride a two-wheeler, IMO.

Thankfully, someone was thoughtful enough to brand the sign, and give it a highly-regarded, award-winning magazine’s stamp of approval:

Anyone driven through this nonsense?
