  • 1365 Excelsior Avenue At Bruce Street Oakland, California - Glenview
    This crosswalk at Bruce and Excelsior avenue needs to be much safer for children attending Edna Brewer Middle School. Cars blow through it regularly, it's at the bottom of a hill on both sides so cars pass through it at an accelerated speed, and there is poor visibility for students waiting to cross because of vehicles parked along the street close to the crosswalk entrance and double parking to drop off students for school. I have seen other schools use speedbumps or reflectors/flashing lights along the cross walk. A stop sign at this crosswalk would also be a welcome solution. Vehicles use Excelsior to bypass freeway traffic during morning commute hours which coincides with students arriving at school.
