Berkeley intersection is a
security hazard, wants fixing
This fall, I’ve been interning at YLabs, a public well being nonprofit that operates on the intersection of Shattuck Avenue and Woolsey Avenue in Berkeley. And whereas we work inside our workplace to scale back well being inequities around the globe, it is onerous to not discover the general public well being and security hazard proper exterior our door.
The intersection is extremely dangerous for everybody concerned: pedestrians, bicyclists and drivers alike. The intersection is a two-way cease with no measure in place to maintain pedestrians protected whereas crossing Shattuck Avenue. It looks like a minimum of as soon as a month we hear the screech of automobile tires after which the inevitable crunch of steel — and run exterior to ensure everybody is alright.
I love the Imaginative and prescient Zero plan for its long-term objective in making Berkley safer, however we will’t afford to attend till 2028. The intersection exterior our road wants consideration now.
