The Murfreesboro City Council held a public comment meeting Thursday night where one Murfreesboro resident brought up a possible issue with traffic signs. Local resident Sam Hay wants the City to adopt a mapping management system called GISAssets, which can bar code scan signs on streets. Hay says areas like at the corner of Northfield and Highland Avenue have speed limit signs missing. NewsRadioWGNS' Jackson Jones has more..
Hay's gave his reasons for why the City needs this system:
He also spoke of the dangers of not having a system and why it could be breaking the law:
Hays' received a speeding ticket recently, and noticed he didn't see a traffic sign on the corner of North and Highland where he was pulled over. He took a virtual tour through Google Earth, and found an accident happened in 2012 where the sign was ran over. It hasn't been replaced since then. He is currently seeking help from the Council, and will meet back with them in a month after gathering more details.
