9th and Rhode Island Ave, NW Friday around 2:30pm

“Dear PoPville,

We were driving at 20-25 mph through Rhode Island coming from NE to NW DC. We had just started crossing 9th street NW after the signal had been green for a few seconds. Suddenly a white Dodge Charger, driving at what I estimate was >70 mph, skipped the red light on 9th street and hit our car on the left side. Thankfully the impact was mostly on the front and not the passenger side door, otherwise it would have been much worse. Read More


Thanks to Brian for sending around 6pm:

“Worst intersection in the neighborhood to walk through, lucky that this doesn’t happen more often.

The M Street drag strip from the Wharf all the way to the Southeast Freeway is pretty terrible, but it’s at its worst where it sees a lot of pedestrian crossings. I really hope nobody was injured, but especially that no pedestrians were involved.”

“I’m not sure *how* this is possible but a car took out a sign and tree and made it’s way onto the sidewalk going the wrong direction on Michigan Ave NE (between 13th and 14th)

Traffic Calming needed ASAP!”
