This signage, ‘God Bless America – Back Bill’, is all over Ward 4 (I live in Takoma) and after some quick Google searches and a neighborhood thread we’re still curious what it means and who’s behind it. Any insight?”

I saw the post yesterday about the two horrible traffic fatalities. The story of the young man that was killed crossing the street between Piney Branch and Dalia Street caught my attention because I live on Dalia Street, so I understand how dangerous it is to cross this street during the day, so the nighttime is even worse. My heart aches for him and his family and wanted to share a petition that was circulated through my building.
Please sign this petition: “DC Department of Transportation: Stop sign at Piney Branch and Dalia”
