Description

The pedestrian crossing at S Pine Street and Flowers Ave is striped but due to vehicle speeds and lack of a crossing light traversing this intersection is often dangerous for walkers, joggers, elderly residents and people in wheelchairs. This important intersection connects to the elementary school, library, a church, Woods Services and several residences and could benefit from traffic calming measures and lower vehicle speeds. At 20 mph a pedestrian has a 95% percent chance of surviving; at 40 mph a pedestrian has only a 10% chance of survival (Reference the ITE Residential Streets standards.)
