Date of Incident / Close Call: 
2007-07-13
Company Name: 
Dunkley Lumber Ltd.
Details of Incident / Close Call: 

A member of the public noted that a stop sign located at the junction of a logging and public road was not being obeyed as some vehicles where just slowing down and not coming to a full stop. This has resulted in a near miss. The stop sign is located at the junction is hard to see as it is at the bottom of a steep sweeping curve. It was also noted that the speed of some of the vehicles once they reached the public road appeared to be excessive.

Learnings and Suggestions: 

• A notice reminding everyone that all traffic signs must be obeyed and to slow down has been distributed to the contractors using this road system.
• A larger sized STOP sign as well as a “Caution Stop Sign Ahead” has been installed at the junction.
• Monitoring of this junction and adjacent public road will be increased.
