Can you install a stop sign to slow down traffic?

Stop signs will not be installed for the sole purpose of slowing down speeders. The purpose of a stop sign is to assign right-of-way and the traffic conditions must meet specific criteria per the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD). Installing unwarranted, or unnecessary, stop signs has proven to have adverse effects on the surrounding area.
