    Happened on Hillside. A VERY dangerous street to cross. Very difficult to see cars coming around the curve. I urge askanim to put up traffic lights in strategic places or come up with another solution.

  • My Take says:

    Should have a traffic light or two to slow traffic down. It is not safe for pedestrians to cross.
