Description

I was almost hit (again) today while crossing 15th St at the intersection of 15th and Fern. A driver was making a left going south on Fern and apparently didn't see the need to avoid the pedestrians using the crosswalk legally. I was able to side step the driver (whose license plate I couldn't get), but as a pregnant woman this was not an easy endeavor. This is one of the most scary intersections as a pedestrian in Crystal City / Pentagon City, as I repeatedly run into problems while crossing especially during rush hour. Is there any way to more actively monitor for aggressive driving here? It's also a bus stop intersection for school children.
