Does this intersection have signs or traffic signals?: Hawthorne Street has a stop sign, Broadway traffic does not stop.
Why do you see this intersection as dangerous?: Drivers have difficulty making left turns onto Broadway here, and pedestrians cross at great peril. The road is very wide here, leading many to stop in the "suicide lane", or the center turn lane. Often pedestrians waiting to cross may not be seen by motorists in a hurry to catch that one break in traffic to make that quick left turn, thus placing pedestrians in danger who were also waiting for a break in traffic. There is a great deal of foot traffic in the area due to the recycling center, bowling alley, and several motels nearby. There is not a single safe crossing anywhere between Wabash and Henderson. Although there is now a sidewalk on the west side of Broadway where there didn't used to be one, making walking safer there, it doesn't make sense to not have a safe way to cross Broadway at or near Hawthorne.
