15 Mile Road and Van Dyke
This is a traffic violation trap. A temporary no right turn sign is currently installed 15 feet before the stop bar for north bound Van Dyke at 15 Mile Road. This is clearly non compliant with MMUTCD guidelines. This type of sign should be at least next to the stop bar or beyond the stop bar but inside the barricaded or closure area so it should be visible with the motorists not try to hide it. The purpose of this sign basically is for the safety of construction workers if they are really working in that area. But Sterling Heights Police Department capitalizes on this flaw created by the contractor. Even during construction, it is safe for large SUVs to turn right at this intersection since there is no special signs/ detour set up prior to the construction area. Now Sterling Heights PD added some more no turn signs along 15 Mile Road corridor, so be careful out there. This is one of Sterling Heights fund raising event.
