Friday Question of the Day/Dear PoP -Traffic Light Edition

“Dear PoP

I think Georgia Avenue could really take off once the economy turns around — as a business intersection with a great mix of old and new businesses. Hopefully if done right, it can be revamped, rebuilt and renovated to keep much of the old neighborhood’s interests at heart. But I think a huge problem is how many intersections there are long Georgia Ave south of the Metro station that don’t have street lights, only those intersections with the signs telling cars to stop for pedestrians. These are frightening intersections to cross — most cars treat Georgia Ave like a highway. I think if the area is to reach its potential, it needs to have street lights to make pedestrian traffic safer.”

I think this is an interesting question for Georgia Avenue and DC in general. Do you think Georgia Avenue would benefit from more traffic lights? Do you think other avenues would benefit from more traffic lights?
