    This intersection is terrible, drivers coming either way on Osborn don't think they should stop at the stop sign, several times I have come down 104th and had to hit the breaks because the other vehicles were coming up pretty fast on the stop.

    Yes it is a very bad intersection I live two houses down and see cars run that stop sign all the time and some times it is intentional at night they turn off their lights to see if any cars are coming and then fly right thru, so very scary…..

    I live on Lincoln and 124th, Auto's fly down Lincoln St. I have a hard time now getting out of the driveway.
    Driver's are driving at a high rate of speed. I have offered the Sheriffs dept. to set up at my pole barn driveway to try to catch drivers speeding at 70+ in a 50 mph speed zone but they do not seem to be interested in doing this. This problem and the amount of traffic is going to explode once the by-pass is finished.
