Here's what they're saying on Town Square

Fatal accident at downtown intersection

Posted by Peter, a resident of the Old Mountain View neighborhood.

Please make it a four-way intersection. I try to avoid this cross-street as often as I can when walking to the library. There is a blind spot caused by parked cars that obstruct oncoming cars from seeing pedestrians. Even when cars see me on the crossing area, they rarely stop (then it's time for me to pull out that mean-looking stare). Forget crossing at night, that's a death-trap.

The city should light this area or better still, install a 4-way stop, unless you want this to happen again.

I do not allow my kids to use this cross-street alone, as I have almost been hit twice by cars that did not stop or slow down.

It's like trying to cross Central Expressway. Please do something about this before someone else gets hit.
