Beloved Crossing Guard Moved From 13th And Spring Road

Also from a reader:  “Perry Hunter our beloved crossing guard at 13th and Spring Rd has been relocated from his post to a location near the DC/MD border on New Hampshire Ave.  Perry lives on this intersection and is a vital member of our local community; he has been in this position for the last 9 years.  We should contact his superior at ddot and let him know how important he is to the safety of that intersection.  He has suggested that people stress that the intersection is busy and children frequently cross unaccompanied by their parents, people run red lights, etc. I know from past posts that several people who cross this intersection are readers and I would like to ask them to all contact DDOT on Perry’s behalf.  He is a great guy and his presence on our corner will be sorely missed!! ”

If you’d like to bring back Perry please contact:
