Third & Jefferson and other traffic hazards
by Marty West


January 31, 2005

I agree something needs to be done with the Third and Jefferson intersection. City Councilmembers are concerned about this area and welcome your ideas.

Also, unrelated to the intersection but a traffic hazard nonetheless - big rearview mirrors on the right side of cars. I was turning from 4th to go up Jefferson. Stopped, looked left, right, no cars so I turned-right in front on a car that was exactly hidden by my right hand mirror. (I apologize to whoever I turned in front of). I am now waiting a few extra seconds before I make turns.

Look forward to hearing your ideas on the intersection too.
