Can we get a stop sign installed to slow traffic?

Stop signs are intended to help drivers and pedestrians determine who has the right-of-way at an intersection.  Stop signs are installed where accidents or other data show that drivers are not observing the right-of-way rule under State law.  Edmonds, like many jurisdictions, does not install stop signs to slow traffic.  When stop signs are installed as "speed breakers", accidents will sometimes increase.
