Description

Very dangerous crossing Newark Ave and Waldo Ave, especially during rush hour. Oftentimes, when waiting to cross, cars speed along Newark Ave with complete disregard for the neon yellow Pedestrian Crosswalk sign. Equally dangerous are cars turning right onto Newark from Waldo - the other I was crossing from the north side of Newark towards Waldo when a car traveling down Newark towards downtown stopped to let me cross BUT another car on Waldo turning right on Newark did not see me and started springing forward. I was pushing an infant in a stroller and had to stop real quick. Even the car that had stopped for me was honking its horn. This cross-walk is really dangerous for pedestrians, and I think there needs to be a traffic signal added because the drivers really have zero regard for any crosswalk signage.
