To the Editor:
Recently, I did a little experiment in my neighborhood, watching the driving habits of people nearing a four way intersection with stop signs. Here’s what I found: In a time span of one hour there were 27 cars that came to the intersection; eight went completely past the stop sign, 14 came to a rolling stop, and five to a full stop. Of the eight that went through the stop sign three people were on their phones and four were texting. Seven of the eight people who passed the stop sign were either on the phone or texting! Of the fourteen with a rolling stop, six were either on the phone or texting.
