Are they also going to put up 2 new stop signs at the intersection of Elm and School streets?  ie make it a 3-way stop?

Rockland needs to do something. It's dangerous on Main Street with the two lanes and cars parked on both sides. Pedestrians need to make eye contact with drivers before crossing. Sometimes walkers aren't visible to drivers until it's too late.
