On Monday, a call to action was issued by South Boston Families for Safe Streets and Sidewalks after the death of a toddler at the intersection of L and Sixth last week.
Let’s start getting REALISTIC, PERMANENT solutions to the problem..let’s use this site to exchange ideas ..TIME FOR ACTION..no more studies, research ect..we can make this work!
Driver inattention is probably one of the biggest threats to everyone’s safety in my opinion. A good ole fashion stand out on L and Broadway with signs saying “Put down your Cell” “Stop looking at your phone- YOU’RE DRIVING” etc. would be a nice message to deliver to commuters.
Yes, let’s replace the phone there staring it with massive flashing signs. And then when someone hits a pedestrian we can all throw our arms up about how we have to get rid of these distracting flashing signs. Genius.
You’re a total idiot — politicians et al hold signs to get their message across all the time- it works and their NOT flashing signs- check your meds – your making stuff up now.
