No clear-view vision at this BI intersection

To the editor;

Recently I read an article about tree planting and building set-backs in the county, also some rules about stop signs. My question is: Does this law refer to the Town of Bow Island?

On the east corner of Centennial Crescent and Centre Street, the stop sign is a full car length back from where you get a view in either direction. A stand of trees blocks the view to the south and the house across the street partially affects the view to the north. If you go through that sign to where you can actually see traffic you could be charged with failing to stop at the sign. I don’t know if any other signs are like that but it might be worth taking a look, maybe setting the sign a little closer to the corner.
