Woodstock Stop Sign Damage


This stop sign, on Tryon at South Street, looks like it took a hit early Sunday morning. Perhaps a driver coming down South Street either missed the right turn onto Tryon or just climbed the curb and tangled with the stop sign. Or did some rowdy kids just grab it and twist it?

Perhaps it was a wake-up call for the driver who didn't expect the streets to be so slick in April. I wonder ... did he even stop and report the damage? A stop and a new signpost, and the time of a couple of Woodstock's Public Works employees, probably easily adds up to about $200.

What's interesting is the really straight cut across the bottom of one-half of the sign, almost like somebody took a saw to it. (Click on the photo to enlarge it, and look at the bottom of the post.) Did you see it happen?
