The county built the road intersection with the single-minded objective to serve cars - with a sweeping turn intended to allow cars to maintain their speed. It is a 1970's road design solution.
Today, we understand how dangerous this kind of road intersection is for bicyclists and pedestrians. The County put a bandaid on a major wound already demonstrated to be more serious. Re-alignment of the road to a 90 degree intersection with a stop sign would put the bikes and pedestrians into the view of drivers as they are legally bound to come to a stop. Drivers would be delayed maybe 5 seconds from the current road design. It would cost more than the bandaid but what has the existing road design already tragically cost the victim, their family and the public?
