Description

These crossing are dangerous at ANY time of day, cars running lights, cutting corners, and traveling at high rates of speed.

While enforcement during the morning rush hour increased before the winter, this road is still commonly a speedway during evening hours.

Further complicating the issue current lights do not allow effective protective time for pedestrians to cross safely.

This was tragically and needlessly demonstrated on Saturday evening when a student was struck and horribly injured.
