Please thank Dmitry Belous and his partner Wiroj Kongkaew for their generosity and thoughtfulness. I live close by and use the intersection daily and so will thank them each time I STOP at the intersection!

@Anonymous - What exactly is your point, whistle-blower?

Unfortunately, my comment was not published in full.
I was saying that the donors may ask some favors later on... We've seen it before.
