Description

When driving East on 14th Street approaching the 14th & Oak / Lakeshore intersection, there is a bus stop sign that obscures the view of the No Right Turn sign. As a result, drivers seeing the right arrow on the Lakeshore & Oak sign think that means they can turn a right there. People are attempting or actually making the right turn there at least once a day. I have personally almost been ran over on a couple of occasions walking across the street.

UPDATE 10/25/2012:

To date the issue has not been addressed. The City isn't spending resources to fix it because they think AC Transit should fix it; and AC Transit isn't fixing it because they think it is the City's responsibility Either one of them could do SOMETHING, but it seems like they are both being stubborn about it - WHILE PUTTING PEOPLE'S LIVES AT RISK. To date, it's been about 5 times that I have crossed the street at that corner, and had a vehicle whizz behind me going the wrong direction.. I have simply observed vehicles rolling around that corner going th wrong way tens of times. There has been a number of head on collisions due to this problem. Does someone have to finally DIE before this becomes important enough for someone to make a move???
