    description

    This is a dangerous route for cyclists. There is not enough room for three feet passing space, and cars do not yield the right of way to the cyclist. Traffic exceeds the speed limit and includes light industrial trucks which means decreased visibility and an increase for accidents. There is no sharrows on this road nor a sign to indicate awareness of bicycles. Not only is this an important route that connects public transportation hubs, this is a residential area near a school, and I have seen children riding their bikes here as well as running across the street against the light. Please put this street on a road diet, place a speed limit sign, bicycle awareness sign or sharrows here. Thank you.
