“STOP” signs should only be used where warranted. By policy and by law Raymore follows the recognized national standard for the installation of all traffic control devices, the “Manual of Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD),” including “STOP” signs. Sections of the MUTCD regarding “STOP” signs can be summarized as follows:
A. TWO-WAY STOP – A two-way stop sign is used to protect traffic on one of two intersecting streets by requiring traffic on the other street to come to a complete stop. A two-way stop sign is appropriate under the following conditions:
1. Where the protected street is a major street,
2. Where sight distances approaching the intersection are substandard and the general right-of-way rule is unsafe, or,
3. Where there is a record of an accident pattern correctable by right-of-way controls.
B. MULTI-WAY STOP – A multi-way stop sign is appropriate primarily where two collector or major streets intersect, where traffic volumes are approximately equal, and where any of the following conditions are met:
1. Where traffic signals are warranted, the Multi-Way “STOP” may be an appropriate interim measure,
2. Where there is a documented accident problem as indicated by five or more accidents in a 12-month period of a type susceptible to correction by a multi-way stop sign, or
3. Where the average total vehicular volume entering the intersection from all approaches is at least 300 vehicles per hour for any 8 hours of an average day, and the combined vehicular and pedestrian volume from the minor street averages at least 200 per hour for the same 8 hours.
One common misuse of “STOP” signs is to arbitrarily interrupt through traffic. Multi-way “STOP” signs are often requested by citizens who hope to control speeds or reduce traffic volume in residential neighborhoods. Studies have shown that this is not the case. The speed reduction is only effective in the immediate vicinity of the “STOP” sign and frequently speeds are actually higher between intersections.
While most drivers are reasonable and prudent, unwarranted signs that are installed in locations that motorists do not expect can result in flagrant violations, intentional or unintentional. In the case where unwarranted “STOP” signs are used as “speed breakers”, they can instill a false sense of security in the neighborhood.
For these reasons, City staff recommends against the installation of multi-way stops unless they meet the MUTCD criteria.
Property owners in this situation have a couple of options. They may apply for a Letter of Map Amendment (LOMA), or a Letter of Map Revision - based on Fill (LOMR-F) (if fill placement is the basis of the request). In addition, property owners may apply for a Letter of Determination Review (LODR). Forms for these purposes can be found on the FEMA Web site.

The City's distribution system generally operates within a pressure range that does not vary more than 5-10 pounds per square inch (psi). Customers who reside in higher elevations throughout the service area will naturally experience less water pressure than those residing in valleys and lower elevations. This is due to the fact that the water column height in the water towers is what produces the pressure on the water mains to push the water to the customer.
