Stop sign to be considered on Del Mar Trails intersection, site of fatal accident


On Thursday, Oct. 22, the Carmel Valley Community Planning Board will consider a proposal for an all-way stop sign at the intersection of Mona Lisa Street and Del Mar Trails Road to improve pedestrian safety.

Resident Anna Crotty has proposed the safety measure following a pedestrian fatality at the same intersection on the afternoon of April 30, 2015. Azita Hafezi-Saghafi, 57, was hit by an oncoming vehicle while crossing at the crosswalk in front of Del Mar Trails Park.

The proposal is to add the all-way stop sign to the existing crosswalk.

Anyone who would like to weigh in on this issue is encouraged to attend the meeting at 7 p.m. at the Carmel Valley Library.
