Make 22nd Street and 7th Avenue a Safer Intersection
We the undersigned are advocating for The Department Of Transportation to install a stop sign, daylighting, and additional signage reminding drivers to slow down at the southbound corner of 7th Avenue at 23rd Street, in Greenwood Heights, Brooklyn. For years, the residents of Greenwood Heights have advocated for safety measures at several intersections in our neighborhood. Most pressing is the intersection at 22nd Street and 7th avenue. This is a very busy intersection for both pedestrians and motorists, yet there is no light, signage, or daylighting on this corner. To summarize, southbound drivers approaching that corner need to make a right turn as 7th Avenue turns into a one-way street. Drivers routinely round the corner at top speed, without checking for pedestrians. This is, quite simply, a tragic accident waiting to happen as scores of young children travel through this intersection on their way to and from local schools daily. Several pedestrians have been hit and injured at this intersection. We the undersigned request immediate action from the New York City Department of Transportation (DOT) in the form of daylighting, a stop sign, and additional signage reminding drivers to slow down. Thank you for your attention to this request.
