SAFETY SIGN "NOT NECESSARY" [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus — 20 December 1950

SAFETY SIGN' `"NOT NECESSARY" The Transport Department does not consider a "halt" .sign necessary at the intersection of Military and Guildford Roads, Guildford, Holroyd Council was informed last week. The Department reached this decision following an inspection by departmental and Police Traffic Branch Officers. It informed Council that "halt" signs were erected only at in tersections presenting an unex pected hazard to motorists or at those with a bad accident history. Too many signs would make 'motorists tend to ignore -them. 'The Department stated that visibility was somewhat-obscured at the southern intersection by a growth of creeper on a paling fence and shrub in a. garden,.on the south-,west corner and re commended that this be cut back. "Evidently .a number of people have to be killed "before, action is taken," Alderman O. Young,. said, commenting, on the Depart ment's letter. Council decided to .inform the Department that it was. .rot saisfied -with its answer.
