Bernthal – Keep Your Shrub Out Of My Intersection

ST. LOUIS, MO (KPLR) - I'm not sure who regulates how close trees can be to an intersection but someone needs too.

I nearly clipped the front end of a Buick right off because the driver was halfway out in the middle of the street.

The driver could not see because the landscaping covered up some of the key sight lines.

I guess the property owner liked having the trees near the edge of the intersection to keep the traffic out of their view.

But safety needs to come first.  

So keep those bushes trimmed back or else we will all need a camera on the hood so driver's won't need to pull out in the middle of the street.

I'm JB and that's the way it oughta be.
