A Warsaw councilman believes a four-way stop at the intersection of Husky Trail and North Pointe Drive at Harrison Elementary School could have saved the life of an eight-year old that was hit and killed there in June.

Jerry Frush spoke toward the end of the Traffic Safety Commission meeting on Wednesday afternoon and spoke in favor of the stops not just there, but at other areas throughout town. He believes the four-way stops would be cheaper and more beneficial than traffic lights. He also believes that the stops would reduce the amount of accidents at intersections that don’t currently use them.

He also mentioned to the committee that he thinks the new proposed school zone signs along Husky Trail are “no big deal,” and said that he doesn’t see those changing people’s driving habits.

These are two models being considered to be put outside of Harrison Elementary School.

City Planner Jeremy Skinner that a traffic study is being done along the road to see what options there are to take, but that information has yet to be relayed.
