POTTSBORO, Tex. – The city of Pottsboro took a step toward improving the safety of county roads on Friday.

The group 'Less Tears, More Years' joined community leaders in putting up new road signs Friday afternoon. The signs indicate curves ahead and were placed on Scott Hill Road where officials say one teen was killed in a car crash last May.

City leaders say this is just one of the ways they're trying to make roads safe for drivers.

"This is just the first sign of many to come. You’ll see numerous come in the future. We're trying to identify the problem locations, worst locations first and start with those," says Pottsboro Police Chief Brett Arterburn.

Arterburn says volunteers put up four signs on Friday and will continue putting them up on other county roads.

    How about putting more effort into teaching these teens to be more responsible drivers? Some lessons in driving courtesy are in order as well. Too often kids go screaming down the road talking or worse yet texting on their cell phones oblivious to other cars around them. Signs won't correct irresponsible behavior. Parents putting kids in cars way beyond their ability is another contributing factor. More often than not, horsepower inexperience = disaster. Road signs and center stripes will do no good if they are ignored. It’s time someone addressed the real issue. Some may say I’m heartless and unsympathetic but often the truth is a bitter pill to take.

    How about center line strips on roads?? For example, Highport Road and Georgetown Road!! Center line strips would really help. Not a great expense.
