  • 6401–6499 Sentinel Dr Hyattsville 20782, United States - Ward 3
    Please install a crosswalk at Editors Park Drive and Sentinel Ave. The absence of a crosswalk creates a hazard for residents of the area AND school children attending Nicholas Orem. Cars are reluctant to stop for pedestrians.

  • 6100–6110 41st Ave Hyattsville 20782, United States - Ward 3
    Cars use the area from corner of 40th and Oliver all the way down to Queens Chapel as a dragstrip. They routinely go upwards of 50 or 55 miles an hour. It is irresponsible of the city to have so long a stretch with just one stop sign and no speed bumps. There’s a huge flow of cars that goes straight from the liquor corner store, turns and then flies down this road. There are no less than 25 children that live in a two block radius. Please do not tell me to go house to house during this time to ask for a speed bump. This happens at least three or four times a day and a car has never been pulled over. A child is going to get hit by a car.
  • Editors Park Dr Hyattsville, MD, 20782, USA - Ward 3
    This is a request to please add crosswalks, speed bumps, or a stop sign on Editors Park Dr. and Sentinel St. This is a dangerous intersection and I have almost been hit by cars speeding down Editors Park Dr. towards Orem Middle School as I cross at Sentinel to walk to the Metro. Furthermore, since Editors Park Dr. leads to Orem Middle School it is extremely dangerous to students during the school year. With the safety of the community in mind, I would appreciate it it Hyattsville would evaluate the safety of this intersection and, at the very least, paint sidewalks. Thank you.
