This time nothing bad happened, but who are you going to believe -- City Hall or your own two eyes?
Using HWC Engineering's own publicly stated design rationale, stipulating that according to INDOT, stop signs cannot be planted to slow traffic, but must be justified by the volume of cross traffic ...
... and if the volume of cross traffic justifies a four-way stop at Elm & 10th (only one block away) ...
... then what prevents the city from controlling the intersection of Spring & 10th by installing a four-way stop?
A four way stop would make this intersection safer for all users, so why is City Hall adamant that such a tried and true safety measure isn't needed?
Throwing the contractor under the speeding semi rig still doesn't address the fundamental safety issue, does it?
Or is it a case of Team Deaf Gahan being unable to admit its own errors?

Grid Control, Vol. 9: "This was supposed to be discussed with us," but Dear Leader doesn't ever discuss, does he?
Grid Control, Vol. 8: City Hall characteristically mum as HWC Engineering at least tries to answer the cross-hatching question.
Grid Control, Vol. 7: What will the Board of Works do to rectify HWC's striping errors on the north side of Spring Street, apart from microwaving another round of sausage biscuits?
