Charles Mahron; An open letter to the City of Springfield

 

We can be grateful that Asbury Park has resolved to calm the traffic on Main Street, thereby making crossing the street safer for everyone…and avoiding a possible legal action like the one facing Springfield and The city of Los Angeles, which recently agreed to pay $9.5 million dollars in a wrongful death lawsuit for a similar situation.

“I last visited your city in December of 2014, the night a mother and two children were struck on State Street crossing from the library to the parking lot. One of the children was killed. I am not aware of any traffic calming measures that have been taken since that tragedy, despite pleas and protests from some of your residents. The inaction speaks volumes.”
