At the corner of 53rd and Market Street, there are two stop signs that are set TOO FAR from the actual corner on Market Street. Cars DO NOT SEE these stop signs, despite having blinking lights. In the past three days, I have seen FIVE cars blow through the stop sign. There is a school at this corner, with MANY children crossing, some without parents. This is also a family neighborhood, with lots of kids and strollers passing on their way to the nearby park. I personally have almost been hit with my stroller twice. Someone is going to get seriously hurt or killed at this intersection unless the stop signs are moved, or a stop light is put in. PLEASE address this pedestrian and traffic safety issue.
