3801-3899 W College Ave Greenfield, WI 53221, USA - FranklinThis unsafe stretch of 2-lane hell, is due to the fact that multiple municipalities cannot get on the same page about who will pay their fair share of the widening and replacement expenses. This according to an e-mail between myself and one of the mayors affected by this delema. I love the mentality. Can't agree, fugettaboutit !!!!!

800 E. Locust St. Milwaukee Wi - Riverwest
I have seen at least 3 rear-end accidents in front of my store on the 800 block of E. Locust, traveling west just before the stoplight at Fratney. Either people can't see the light, don't know it's there, or simply don't pay attention. When traffic slows or stops before that intersection - POW ! People get rear ended.
Two of the recent accidents were back to back, one day after the other, then another the next week.
There was another near Holton the other day where the 2nd car ended up ON TOP of the first car !
I don't know how to solve this really, aside from widening the street so that it's 4 lanes from the bridge all the way to Hopkins, but that won't happen, nor would I want it to.
The speed limit is already 25, though no one realizes it and everyone goes 30+. Although I don't think speed is the problem as much as inattentive driving, and people not expecting traffic to stop at a minor intersection.
If they took out the light at Fratney, it would probably just move the accidents closer to Holton, and result in more speeding on Locust.
Warning signs would probably not be noticed or ignored. A flashing yellow light with a sign might help.
I think the only solution that would really work would be to replace the light at Fratney with a larger, more visible light - the kind that hang over the intersection.
One of the accidents the other week, the car hopped the curb. They didn't get too far - the right wheel was only about a foot over the curb.
There are a lot of pedestrians on Locust - including kids and the stores on this block are pretty close to the street. How long before a car hits someone on the sidewalk, or crashes into a storefront trying to avoid an accident ?
I doubt they'll replace the stoplight, but we at least need a "slow - stop ahead" sign or something.
The Corner Of Howard Ave And Whitnall Milwaukee, WI 53207, USA - TippecanoeThis is right next to an elementary school (grades k4-8) which means there are 4 year old children running around sometimes. There are people who just don't obey the signs and the crossing guard! She has been nearly hit several times. I wish a police officer could be there when the kids are out so maybe everyone will slow down and pay attention.
1655 S 1st St Milwaukee, WI 53204, USA - Clock Tower AcresDUE TO THE CONSTRUCTION ON 1ST & MITCHELL , CARS ARE SPEEDIND AROUND THE CORNER AND I PERSONALLY ALMOST GET HIT. I WAS CROSSING THE STREET WHEN I HAD THE WALK SIGN AND A CAR SPED RIGHT IN FRONT OF ME, WHEN I WAS CROSSING TO GET TO THE BUS STOP. THIS NEEDS TO BE TAKEN IN CONCERN FOR EVERYONES SAFETY.
