I watched today while a 5 year old cross 27th Ave and be missed by near inches
by a huge pick up truck. The girl did everything right and did not just run
out into the street, she was crossing, and out of know where a huge truck comes
flying north up 27th, unfortunately an occurrence that happens all day, he
would have had time to see her had he not been going so fast, he finally saw
her at the last minute and had to swerve to avoid her. Frightening!!!! On 27th
people fly north and south to get to, or from 35th, because of the Hiawatha
entrance/exit. Oh and don't think that him almost hitting a child slowed him
down at all, he continued to fly up 27th.
There are a lot of young kids living on and around 27th, something has got to
change, or a child will probably not be so lucky next time. I would like to see
either a four way stop, or to change the stop sign to 27th rather than on 37th
st. I dream would be a dead end at our block, even though it would
inconvenience me like crazy, I WANT MY CHILDREN ALIVE!!!!
Any suggestions would be great, thanks Sarah
