Bypass Signs Create Confusion At Intersection

Dear Editor,
I have recently observed several near misses at the intersection of Wise St, with Miss No. 7, and Miss 315.  Vehicles crossing No. 7 appear not to yield  the right of way after stopping due to the sign which states “cross traffic does not stop.” I have been told that sign indicates “cross traffic” means that traffic crossing Hwy. 7.  This may be confusing  to some causing several fatalities at this intersection.  It seems to me that the sign should read:   “HIGHWAY 7 TRAFFIC DOES NOT STOP” instead of “cross traffic does not stop.”
What is your opinion?
