A stop sign is intended to determine the right of way at an intersection. It is a rather poor speed control device. Studies have shown that the effectiveness of a stop sign on speed ranges from 10 to 150 feet from the sign, after which a vehicle will regain its original speed or faster. If a speeding problem exists, the County can park a radar trailer on your street to inform drivers of their speed.
No. If your property is a lot in a subdivision we can provide a copy of the recorded subdivision map which will show easements created by that map and other easements affecting the property at that time; however, there is no reason to assume that other easements have not been created since. A title company insurance policy or preliminary title report is the best source of disclosing things such as easements affecting a particular property.
