> Today we had another accident at 17th and Franklin Street NE.. This intersection has no stop signs or lights on Franklin but has a stop sign on 17th. There have been numerous accidents there over the years including deaths and now there seems to be an accident there at least once a month. The intersection is a cut through for commuters going to and from Maryland and is very busy in the morning and in the evening. Additionally the sight lines at the intersection are not good because of the parking on Franklin. We have a lot of ederly who live on this street who avoid this intersection when they drive because it is dangerous. The solution to the problem would seen to be a stop sign on Franklin or at least speed bumps on Frankllin to slow the vehicles down at the intersection. This simple thing if done would save lives, decrease greatly the number of accidents,and increase the quality of life for the ederly and the young students who have to cross this street. The information about the dangerous of this intersection is a matter of record and I am sure easily verifiable by the accident records at 5D yet nothing has been done in the face of request that go back years. We the residents of this area are requesting that the matter be given immediate attention and addressed.
