Queens Blvd. Countdown Clocks Arrive

September 9, 2010 Leave a comment Go to comments

This new countdown clock is at the corner of Queens Blvd & 71st Ave.  Hopefully, they have also lengthened the time to actually walk across or, unfortunately, it won’t really help solve the problem. But more importantly, I still maintain that this is an example of going after the wrong part of the problem. The City needs to somehow either physically slow down cars making turns at these pedestrian intersections — speed bumps, rumble strips, anything? — or better enforce the many overly aggressive motorists at these intersections who regularly ignore the pedestrians’ right of way.
