I live in Point Breeze near the intersection of Reynolds Street and South Lexington Avenue, where the 8-year-old boy on a bicycle was hit by an SUV Monday evening. I regularly use this intersection and have several times almost been hit by cars either speeding or turning the corner.
Twice I contacted the city requesting changes be made to improve safety. Both times the city responded that the intersection was safe and no improvements were needed. Perhaps now the city will take another look at this dangerous intersection for changes to improve pedestrian and bicycle safety.
