Why the stop sign at 28th and Pikes Peak
The city installed a stop sign at 28th Street and Pikes Peak in early 2007.
Bernie Herpin, who was on City Council at the time, said he helped bring that about.
“It was the result of a neighbor, who was concerned about 'locals'
using Pikes Peak to escape the speed limit and greater police presence on Colorado,” Herpin explained in an e-mail. “Apparently, a drunk driver also ran into a construction dumpster that had been placed on the street. There are several children who live in that block.”
