Mark Powell kept watching cars speed down the main road less than half a mile from where he is raising two daughters – so he asked the city of San Diego to add a traffic light.
As reported by Jonathan Horn ABC 10 News:
He was elated when he got a letter from the city saying it studied the intersection of Governor Drive at Lakewood Street in University City and said it would put it on the priority list for a new traffic light.
That was in 2010.
Fast forward to the end of 2017, and there is still no light, crosswalk, or stop sign leading from Governor Drive into his neighborhood. And it’s the only way in or out.
