Recognizing there are numerous road sign obstructions representing danger to all who travel territorial roads, Democrats in Action for Safety & Health took to St. Thomas roads beginning a six-month commitment to clear the bush obstructing all directional and informational traffic signs such as STOP, ROUTE, SPEED, HIDDEN DRIVEWAY, SCHOOL BUS STOP, etc.
“Trying to find the traffic sign is not a game,” emphasized Edgar “Baker” Phillips, St. Thomas Democratic Party District Chairman. Baker continued, “for example, when STOP signs are obstructed there is clear and present danger, just look at the photos.” He observed, “engaged in the mission we saw that there were many signs completely covered, some down, bent, or covered by road grime, making them difficult or impossible to see.”
Baker added, “the community challenges the Mapp administration to make our roads safer, make road signs visible, fill pot holes and enforce traffic laws.” Chairman Phillips continued, “Democrats in Action for Safety & Health recognize that this task is a responsibility of the Public Works Department of the Executive Branch of government.
However, when government again fails the community, it becomes the responsibility of the grassroots to do what is necessary for our own safety and health, regardless of political views.”
