WEST JORDAN, Utah (ABC 4 News) - Have you ever struggled to see a road sign? The problem is about to explode as trees bloom in the coming weeks.
ABC four found trees partially blocking three stop signs near Grizzly Way and 7000 South in West Jordan. The signs are clearly visible within 50 feet, but one sign is hard to notice at 100 feet away.
"I know the one on this corner has been trimmed before, but there are some if you don't know where they are you're going to have a problem," said Kathy Dunford.
West Jordan Mayor Melissa Johnson immediately got into her car and drove past the stops signs after ABC 4 contacted the City.
Johnson says she takes the safety of her citizens is her top priority.
She says while the signs are street legal she can see how the trees are obstructing their view.
"I haven't had any problems, but also I've lived here a long time and I know where they are," said Dunford.
West Jordan says it will not trim the trees now, but will watch them closely as they bloom in the coming weeks.
