The Road Commissioner shall erect and maintain stop signs in compliance with the provisions of the Vehicle Code at the entrance to every intersection where a Civil or Traffic Engineer licensed by the State of California has determined traffic safety and/or intersectional operation will be enhanced, the proposed stop control shall be supported by a safe approach speed of less than 5 MPH and the Community Planning/Sponsor Group (where applicable). If there is opposition to the proposed stop control, the matter will be reviewed by the San Diego County Traffic Advisory Committee as a full item and a recommendation will be submitted to the Board. The Board can then determine if there is special hazard to life or property by reason of the volume of traffic at such intersection, or because of the lack of visibility to the drivers of vehicles approaching such intersection, or because of the number of reported accidents or the apparent probability thereof, or by reasons of physical conditions which render any such intersection exceptionally dangerous or hazardous to life or property, and where the factors creating this special hazard are such that according to the principles and experience of traffic engineering, the installation of stop signs is reasonably calculated to reduce the expectancy of accidents and that the use of warning signs would be inadequate.
