Cars, trucks and busses NEVER yield to pedestrians in crosswalk. What makes it even more dangerous is when one side of traffic stops and the other doesn't. A large "YIELD TO PEDESTRIANS" sign is urgently needed IN THE MIDDLE OF THE ROAD. Having a crossing guard during school hours IS NOT ENOUGH. Townsend Ave has become a speedway.
Towndsend Avenue needs traffic calming measures that match the pedestrian crosswalks in East Rock and other parts of the city. The original ticket for this was opened in 2010. Eight years later nothing has been done.
