  • I understand from neighbors at the intersection of this horrific accident that the “stop” sign is not visible due to vegetation. I believe that requests have been made to the City to trim/correct the problem to no avail. The accident was posted on Next Door and neighbors commented.

  • The Stop Sign at this intersection is blocked by trees and neighbors have complained many times. Cars continually run the sign because it is not visible. Speed may have been a contributing factor or the City is covering for their negligence. Terrible tragedy.

  • You can clearly see all four stop sign at this melee intersection, the trouble is that few people stop. I shot a movie clip of people running the stop signs, many going through the crosswalks at 25-30mph. This crux of the problem has nothing to do with an untrue vegetation rumor. Drivers think this is their own personal freeway interchange and that pedestrians are violating the driver’s “space”. There is a house on each corner. I’ve always wished I could ask the stop sign runners to their face if I could drive on their street the same way? Selfish, thoughtless, stupid people, they finally did the inevitable.

  • The stop sign is not the issue. All four stop signs are clearly visible. The one people are citing as affected by the tree is not obscured; more importantly there is a clearly visible sign well before the tree and intersection with the red, stop sign logo warning motorists of the stop sign.
    This is the problem of all motorists driving too fast, and the tragedy of someone not paying attention.

  • I live in the block where this tragic loss of life occurred. This is a dangerous intersection simply because cars travel way too fast on these residential streets and often just don’t stop at the stop sign.

  • A parkway tree leans out over the southbound lane and obscures the stop sign. The city seems to have tried to address the problem by adding a yellow caution sign, but it’s still a problem. The city should take down the tree.
