GB is the Wild West in terms of traffic. Why won’t GBPD use radar and perform traffic enforcement? AG radars Grand all the time. We got Drones,, and more Drones.. Why doesn’t GBPD report traffic tickets like they do other crimes?????????????

NEVER assume an approaching car is going to stop or that the driver even sees you :/ Especially at night.

More lighting and enhance pedestrian crossings are needed at several places on Grand, maybe the new mayor will work on this, something Mayor Lee wasn’t concerned about.

Proper, quality, and correct distribution of night lighting may be the answer, not simply more lighting. Disabling glare from bad lighting is a real problem in our cities. This is especially exacerbated when fog & rain on windshields amplifies glare and creates more distortion of the view in front of drivers. City officials in planning and building departments have historically ignored the problems that bad artificial night lighting creates in both urban and rural environments. The most prudent and safest thing pedestrians can do to protect themselves is to carry a flashlight and use it while walking along the shoulder of roadways or crossing streets so as to enhance their visibility to drivers.

Geez! How many people have expired at that or near that location due to being hit by cars?
