Area residents oppose Quasar

(Continued)

Tonawanda News — “We’re hoping to increase the visibility and reduce the chance for accidents,” Police Chief Anthony Palombo said.

Parker Boulevard resident Chris Fiore said that the area’s trees make it difficult for drivers to see. He argued that a stop sign should be added to increase safety.

“It’s a very busy street ... drivers are coming from Sheridan, and they are going from 40 mph to 30 mph, and they don’t obey the rules — they just zip (through the intersection),” he said. “There’s a big stretch there, they go fast and now there’s more and more young kids in the area.”

Palombo said the town can’t install a stop sign per state Department of Transportation regulations, but board members and highway officials said they would look into the issue further.
