It is time that the city place stop signs at the intersection of Reynolds Street and Lexington Avenue in Point Breeze. This crossroad is where many motorists take a short cut to avoid the daily traffic on Penn Avenue one block north. It is also the scene of a tragic accident that happened Monday, during rush hour, when a little boy biking with his family was hit by an SUV.
Knowing the traffic pattern at this intersection, there is no doubt in my mind that if there was a stop sign in both directions of Reynolds at this intersection, this accident would have never happened.
Mr. Mayor and city council, send me and the rest of the neighborhood the bill and put those stop signs up now!
