Excellent idea. I recall when this was a common practice in schools back in the day.

Nowadays, those who use the Iron Horse Trail dont know what the four letter word:

S T O P

means.

They mostly just bike or run through without any consideration to the cars on the road which dont have a STOP sign to obligated them

The Trail users have the obigated STOP sign but that doesnt matter.

They cross with the one letter salute to drivers, the One middle finger.

They rarely STOP for they believe they are exempt from stopping; they expect cars to stop.

How to change this attitude?

Paint S T O P bigger and in red?????
