    I just returned from one of my daily walks in/around the High Point Neighborhood and want to remind all ‘hunters’ to slow down! Looking at a map while driving is dangerous in any area, but especially in this densely-populated neighborhood. Racing from one intersection island to the next, looking for signs, and blowing through unmarked intersections is unsafe.

    agree; I’m in Admiral/Belvidere, and cannot believe the amount of traffic, fast moving cars I’ve heard outside all morning; please slow down, watch for pedestrians

    All the slow cars must be in my neighborhood…it’s been a pain to go run errands because everyone is driving 2 miles an hour to look at the sales from their cars. Sticking to the main roads today!

    Also please note that the “No Parking Any Time” signs do NOT have any fine print that says “Unless there is a garage sale”.

    As a motorcycle rider, I learned a couple years ago to never ride in W.Seattle on Garage Sale Day. People too busy looking at signs, pulling u-turns without looking, and slamming on their brakes with no regard to who or what is behind you.

    In one day, I was almost taken out twice on 35th, from the Bridge to Roxbury.

    Walked the dog early this morning to avoid these problems. I’ve almost been run over by speeding, bargain-hunting maniacs too many times on WSGSD. It’s a fun event, but seriously…RELAX.

    I feel the WSGS is a good idea but it is a little out of control. People must be coming from inside and outside of WS which is ok but it just makes it a crazy day to try to get anywhere .. not to mention all of the illegal parking, inattentive driving, etc that others have mentioned above. Also, I thought this was a garage sale but all of the businesses in the Junction get in on it. No foul but not exactly the definition of a garage sale. I’m afraid it’s only a matter of time before someone gets hurt or property gets damaged. There are just too many uncontrolled intersections in our neighborhood and people not paying attention.
