The first sign, added about two years ago on Bingham Avenue in Rumson to warn of a stop sign farther ahead, didn’t seem to get the point across to drivers heading south toward Rumson Road.
A second warning, saying there is a stop 1,000 feet ahead, didn’t quite do the trick, either.
“We were still getting accidents,” Mayor John Ekdahl said.
That intersection, he said, has seen the most accidents in town in the last five years.
With the recent completion of improvements made by Monmouth County, Ekdahl hopes the number of accidents will decrease. It’ll be a game of wait-and-see, though.
