'Don't Block the Box' at Westwood and Pearl

New pavement markings  -- as well as additional signs -- have been added to Pearl Road at Westwood Drive to remind motorists not to block the intersection.
Police are trying to eliminate gridlock at that corner, typically caused by southbound vehicles blocking the intersection so that Westwood traffic can't get through on a green light.
The solution? Don't enter the intersection unless you can make it all the way through. 
That way, you're not causing traffic jams and safety issues.
