SIGHT DISTANCE OBSTRUCTIONS ON PRIVATE PROPERTY AT URBAN INTERSECTIONS

This paper discusses a study of current procedures used to correct sight distance obstruction on private property at urban intersections. The purpose of the paper is to identify the problems encountered in the removal of the obstruction; to determine the current laws, ordinances, and practices used by government agencies in removing obstructions; and to make recommendations for improving the laws, ordinances, and current methods of removal. A questionnaire mailed to state, county, and municipal traffic engineers throughout the United States was used to gather data for the study. Based on responses, recommendations are made for improving the level of voluntary compliance by the property owner. A model ordinance and a drawing showing how one city deals with this problem are included.
