I live in the Forest Hills Street area, near Olmsted and Peter Parley St. Last week I got the fright of my life when I was crossing Forest Hills Street at Olmsted and literally had to dash to avoid being hit by a speeding car. The car did not appear to slow down despite the fact that I had an infant strapped to my chest and was holding my toddler's hand!
It seems to me that there are at least 3 major traffic problems at this end of FH street (generally the stretch between Woodside and Washington): 1) speeding; 2) cars failing to stop at the STOP sign at Peter Parley and FH; and 3) cars turning onto FH from Washington during the hours when it is prohibited. It seems like it is just a matter of time before someone gets struck by a car.
I have emailed Matt O'Malley about getting some more signage/police presence/speed bumps for the area, but I am wondering if folks here have any other ideas? Also, do other folks find the traffic on FH to be a problem?
Thanks in advance for your feedback.
