Crossing safety – not in the plans?

Today just as Carolina finished off Clemson for the 52nd time in a row at home, WRAL ran a teaser interview with our neighbor Maeda Galinsky, The longer story is to be aired at 11 pm this evening.
Meada was, and will be, talking about the accident that caused the death of her husband, David, recently. David was crossing Fordham Blvd at Manning Drive on his way to meet Maeda at another Carolina game. Maeda’s point is that the road and crossing were not designed with people in mind. That lack of design causes deaths and leaves the drivers having to live with some horrible guilt. The fix is to reevaluate the design of intersections such as Fordham/Manning.

  1. I agree, but I would expand it to ask whether out *community* is designed withpeople in mind. It takes a lot more than intersections to get from A to B. There are a few parts of our community that are not designed for ‘cars first’ (like downtown, Southerm Village, Meadowmont, parts of UNC) but they are separated by highways and cul-de-sacs.
