A black-and-orange sign saying "Beware of aggressive drivers" marks hostile roadway turf, while others read "Don't tailgate" and "Slow down--save a life." The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation began posting the messages in a northern Philadelphia suburb last week near Interstate 476, hoping to calm problem stretches of highway. More signs were planted Friday on state routes. Motorists acknowledged the driving problems but were skeptical about the signs.

That's certainly the case in the Hollywood Hills--where actor Jason Priestley's name has helped residents persuade city traffic planners to use stop signs to control speeders in the neighborhood. Their success signals a new policy that is expected to help crack down on speeders all across Los Angeles.

The city's Traffic Commission decided at its Wednesday meeting to recommend that the city put a stop sign at Augusta Drive and Rivera Place. The commission examined the safety of the intersection after residents said people driving on that portion of Augusta Drive, which is on a hill, couldn't see traffic approaching from other directions, according to a staff report.
