bound traffic on West 18th Street at South Sangamon Street. Not Recommended. West 18th Street is a collector roadway with higher volumes than South Sangamon Street, a local street. Stop signs on streets with higher volumes such as 18th Street tend to increase rear-end crashes, increase congestion, and create a false sense of security for pedestrians that every vehicle will stop. Additionally, stop compliance is particularly low at T-intersections. Stop Sign. Not Recommended. CDOT does not recommend a stop sign stopping traffic on 18th Street — (18-01130503) [Or2018-133]
