Crossing Park Road on the south side of 410 is dangerous due to the length of the crossing, speed of traffic turning onto Park Avenue,* and poor visibility for east bound drivers coming uphill. Because of the angle of this intersection, drivers often do not use turn signals—giving pedestrians no warning. We worry about the safety of all pedestrians, but especially our children traveling to school.
We want the City of Takoma Park to add a crosswalk and features that induce traffic calming for traffic turning onto Park Avenue*—preferably shortening the distance to cross.
*Please note: This petition has been amended to correctly state Park Avenue instead of Park Road.
