I appreciate that there are "sharrows" along Edgewood, but I recently was almost run over by a speeding driver at 10 am on a weekday who was distracted by the kids in the back seat of his car. I play by the rules--I ride on the street, obey stop signs and traffic lights, etc.--so it is frustrating to me that I would still feel unsafe on this relatively calm street.
