Safety concern in Springfield Gardens


From CBS 2:

Residents who live on 185th Street near 143rd Avenue in Springfield Gardens, Queens describe their neighborhood as a racetrack.

They told CBS 2′s Hazel Sanchez on Wednesday that cars whip around a dangerous, two-way curve, with no idea about what may come from the other direction.

There is a school and two day care centers located on 185th Street, and locals said they are surprised that a human has not been seriously hurt yet.

Donovan Richards, a spokesperson from City Councilman Sanders’ office, is now demanding that the Department of Transportation install speed bumps, traffic lights or signs.

This was going on in the 1960s. Amazing.

My great-aunt lived 2 blocks over on a similar S-curve. This has been an issue for years. Why are people acting surprised now?

Wait, I thought bike lanes were the problem.
