BABBITT, MN (Northland's NewsCenter)---To prevent T-bone crashes at rural two way stop intersections, the town of Babbitt is taking extra preventative safety measures.

Drivers will soon see two blinker stop signs on County Highway 112 and Central Boulevard in Babbitt.

Together the signs cost nearly $4,000 and have a life expectancy of 10 to 15 years.
The blinking lights are intended to alert drivers to the stop signs and further prevent roll through crashes.

Four blinker stop signs in Duluth, Cook, Hibbing and Iron Junction have already been installed.
