New S-curve warning sign installed along Plain City road

News

PLAIN CITY (ABC4 News) – There’s now a new warning sign on a Plain City road warning drivers about an upcoming S-curve.

The area of concern is 1900 North and 3150 West.

Residents tell ABC4 the road is dangerous because drivers speed around the curve not realizing it’s there until it’s too late.

Back in May, a 41-year-old man died after he crashed his motorcycle.

The Weber County Sheriff’s Office said he was going over 50 miles per hour.
The speed limit along this stretch of roadway is 40 miles per hour.

When the crash happened, ABC4 raised the issue of the missing sign with Plain City Mayor Jon Beesly.

On June 1, a new S-curve warning sign was installed.

The roadway is maintained by Plain City.

However, for this report ABC4 also reached out to the Utah Department of Transportation. By phone, Robert Miles, the director of traffic safety told ABC4 S-curves aren’t designed to be dangerous. What makes them dangerous is drivers not going the posted speed limit.
