Dear PoP – I Still think Speed bumps are Needed on 1st St NW

“Dear PoP,

You posted my reader request about speed bumps a week or so ago…
It generated lots of debate about speed bumps, ambulance routes, and whether 1st NW is a side street or not.

There was just a traffic accident last week, right at the intersection of 1st and N NW, where the cross-walks and ped x-ing signs are that all the drivers ignore.

In the pictures, you can see where a car went over the curb, and through two fences, to hit the side of the condo building. (pictures are of 1st and N NW, looking north.)

Just wondering if people still think the car speeds are acceptable and that the kids crossing every morning don’t deserve some safety, or a four-way stop…”
