Description

A car said to be going 60-70MPH got into an accident here yesterday, breaking a tree in half, and an hour later, a tanker truck full of natural gas nearly hit a live downed power wire broken off by the first guy.

The speed limit here is 25MPH. People drive like wingnuts on the Michigan Ave bridge over the train tracks.

It's impossible to cross Michigan Ave by foot or by car with cars whizzing by at 50MPH. Visibility's very low and accident rates very high.

Let's get a speed camera.
