Issues: road safety
6 VotesFix it! Voted!35th And Wisconsin Nw Washington D.C., DC - Glover Park
The intersection of 35th and Wisconsin NW doesn't have a stoplight, but it does have two crosswalks and two large signs alerting drivers on Wisconsin to the presence of pedestrians. Despite this, drivers routinely speed through the intersection without yielding. Since this intersection is between my bus stop and my office, I feel like I'm taking my life into my hands twice a day just going to work and back. A flashing yellow light or additional signage needs to be installed here if pedestrians are to be able to cross safely.

2 VotesFix it! Voted!39th St Nw & Tunlaw Rd Nw Washington, DC - Glover Park
The stop signs at intersection of 39th St and Tunlaw Rd NW are consistently ignored by drivers, with drivers rolling through the intersection. This area is not well-lit, and it is only a matter of time before someone gets hurt. I've raised the issue before with Mary Cheh, and there was a police car parked there for a while, but this is a temporary solution and not the best use of our public safety resources. I propose that a raised sidewalk be installed at this intersection (similar to one at the intersection of Park Rd and 18th/19th (?) Sts) that will increase visibility of pedestrians and force cars to respect the stop sign.
