Sight is limited from that stop sign. One has to pull out some in order to see if a car is coming. I route to avoid that area because of the limitations at that stop sign.

Yes sight is limited and very dangerous at that intersection. street should be blocked off or street lights put up. its no way but to ease your car up inch by inch in order to see and if you dont know that intersection you will pull out too far before you realize you have done so .Jessica was a friend of mine and I'm so sorry this happened to her at such an early age. rest in peace Jessica and may god please watch over her children
