Marcy & Metro

Dear NYCDOT, if I am killed one of these mornings on my walk to work, it will almost assuredly be here, where it happens almost every day.

The traffic you see turning in the photo is high speed traffic, people literally racing against on-coming traffic and pedestrians to get onto the BQE down Marcy St. They never get a red-light, and ignore the crossing symbol, the cross walk, the people in it... I mean, seriously, I've been very nearly run-down with the right of way I don't know how many times. Often the cars seem to speed up to chase you out of the road.

One of these days I need to write the DOT a letter, they do take comments and complaints. But what the fuck, who thought this was a good idea?
