The months-long traffic sideshow at the intersection of Barracks Road and Emmett Street apparently has run its course.

In the wake of continuing on-air advocacy and a investigative report exposing dangerous traffic conditions, illegal signs, and a man distracting motorists at the intersection, all manifestations of the documented hazard have disappeared—save glue residue on the formerly commandeered directional signage.

While political cover was provided for Charlottesville officials finally to take action, enforcement policy and traffic justice should not be reliant on media exposés.
