I know of four people (myself included) who have been hit by cars at the intersection of Florida and R. DDOT came and inspected the intersection (last December) and their representatives all agreed that a light needed to be placed there. What did they do? They put up another cross walk sign 4 months later, only after another person was struck by a car. What does it take? A fatality? Anyone in Bloomingdale can vouch for the horror that is the intersection at R and Florida.

Has anyone reported this to DDOT online via http://311.dc.gov ? If so is there a service request number we can follow?
The Pedestrian Master Plan has been written and steps are being taken to implement it so talk to your ANC and your councilmember now. If your neighborhood ANC has a safety or transportation chair, make sure you bring this to their attention. If not, contact the chair so this horrible intersection and others like it can be made safe for walkers. Thanks!
