Police Chief Paul Smith says a change is coming to the intersection of Pine Drive and Maple Avenue, next to Sherwood Elementary School.

Coun. Bob Doiron, chairman of the protective and emergency services committee, has been bringing up concerns at the intersection for the past few months, saying people are not stopping.

Doiron added that he has personally witnessed people “blowing right through the intersection’’ so he asked the police department and public works if it could come up with any possible solutions.

Scott Adams, the manager of public works, is currently in the process of ordering flashing lights that will be placed on the existing stop signs.

These are LED solar-powered traffic safety stop signs. The City of Summerside also has them in spots.
