BRANSON — Drivers in Branson will be stopped by environmentally friendly signs at two busy intersections.
The city has installed flashing stop signs that are powered by energy from the sun.
The city paid $4,100 for the four solar-powered stop signs. The city expects to recover the money through savings in electricity costs.
The Springfield News-Leader reports that the intersections were chosen because they are difficult to see. The signs' manufacturer says the flashing LED lights above the signs can be seen up to two miles away.
