Neighbors: NW intersection is dangerous

Who's responsible: District Department of Transportation
Number of votes to fix: 16

Neighbors near the corner of Park Rd. and Klingle Rd. NW have been complaining for a number of months that the lights and signage at the Y-shaped intersection are poorly placed, since seemingly oblivious drivers often blow through a red signal there.

Residents said the problem occurs when drivers are approaching the area going west on Park Rd. Drivers often run the red right-turn signal for continuing on Park. They seem to confuse it with a green signal for heading onto Klingle.

"It is dangerous for pedestrians crossing Park on the north side. Could we get improved signage or some traffic-calming measure here?" writes griper Park Rd. Resident.

John Lisle, a D.C. Department of Transportation spokesman, was unaware of the problem, but said that he would refer it to the agency's Safety Team, which is responsible for handling these type of issues.
