TUPELO, Miss. (WTVA) -- Months of preparation have paid off for Tupelo's largest neighborhood association.
Those who live in the Joyner neighborhood asked for four additional stop signs and now, those stop signs are in place.
Residents wanted the stop signs to put the brakes on drivers who often speed through the area.
"Joyner does have traffic that comes through the neighborhood, so the stop signs are going to help those who come through the neighborhood be more respectful of our neighbors and the walkers and the people who come here to visit because of city park," Leslie Mart said.
Mart was among those who presented materials to the Tupelo Traffic Committee as well as the Tupelo City Council.
The stop signs will become active the last week of March.
