Downey stop sign

Downtown Downey has always had a lot of stop signs. But many years back, when the Embassy Suites hotel was built and 2nd Street no longer went through, these two stop signs were removed. There wasn't enough cross traffic to justify them anymore.

But we locals couldn't adapt. Too many drivers on 2nd Street just couldn't remember that the cross traffic no longer had to stop. There were accidents. After just a few months, the stop signs were back.
