Flipped Wydown Signs? Those Protect Students

A reader made the observation about the Clayton signs this weekend via the online SeeClickFix tool.

crossing guards can rotate stop signs on Wydown Boulevard near Hanley Road to help safeguard students crossing the street, public works director Michael Pratt said Monday.

A Clayton-Richmond Heights Patch reader reported noticing the turned signs over the weekend:

"The stop signs for both east and westbound Wydown are turned backward," the reader wrote on the . "Must be some silly prank. Please turn the signs the right way."

In fact, the stop signs on Wydown Boulevard at Westwood Drive are made to turn that way, Pratt stated in an email.

"During school drop-off periods in the morning and again during pick-up periods in the afternoon, school crossing guards turn the signs to stop traffic on Wydown and allow children to cross this busy street," Pratt stated. "Except for school drop-off and pick-up periods, the signs are turned to allow traffic to flow unimpeded on Wydown Avenue."
