You Don't Trim The Bushes

Of course bushes and trees should be pruned and trimmed properly to do and look their best, but that's not what I'm talking about. Then how does this topic relate to driving safety. I'm talking about the bushes and trees near the street in front of your house that block the traffic sign. The state and/or the city highway departments should be aware of this and do the trimming, but many times they don't. I have seen many stop and other signs blocked by trees or bushes at the last second and have had to jam on my brakes or miss a turn. Is your house on the corner at the intersection? How many times has there been an accident? How many times have you heard screeching brakes? How many times have you done nothing about it? When are you going to get a clue? When are you going to do something about it? "Well, I can't now, I'm watching an adult cartoon." You should call the highway department and advise them of the problem. If they don't take care of it in a reasonable amount of time then do it yourself. If the tree or bushes are on your property then you should do it. It's not only the stop signs that should be cleared. Any traffic and Route number signs in front of your house should be your responsibility and any that you observe while driving should be called in to the highway department.
