If it was a townhouse project, it might have taken 1 month, not 6

Six months after the crash that killed Tatsuo Nakata at 47th/Admiral, a reader tells us the flashing lights/crosswalk sign have FINALLY gone up.

    It seems the only thing that slows drivers down is an accident scene. Any way we can enlist the help of Medic One or AMS to park their ambulances (with lights flashing) at various points along Admiral? I’m sure there are a few of us who could make some giant cloth dolls and bloody them up for effect.

    Perhaps we could pick up a battered stroller at one of today’s garage sales to add to the accident scene.

    No enforcement = no respect for our neighborhoods, no respect for our lives.

    The problem of whacked-out and speeding dangerous drivers exists on Delridge Way, 35th Ave, Fauntleroy Way, Roxbury and every other arterial or semi-arterial around West Seattle as well as the entire city. Major crackdown by SPD is long over due. Fines need a BIG increase, not some petty insignificant amount.

    I wanted to invent a road intallation that would be speed activated so that a spike strip would pop up if a car went over it at a higher speed than the limit, thus puncturing the rear tires. THAT would slow people down. Doesn’t seem like it would be to hard, probably have to pass some kinda vote though.

    It is sad when “development” priorities outweight human lives. There may be a good reason why it took so long by I highly doubt it. Reactive will lose every time to proactive. Guess we know where “their” priorities are development/overcrowding). Yeah, booming with no plan for infrastructure or atleast worrying about it later as appears to be the case. Lame in every sense of the word.

Sorry, comment time is over.
