New Blogger: What's on My Mind Today? Drivers and the Need of a Stop Sign

Stop sign needed at Ray and Balboa? What you do you think?

Hey B.Game Patchers,

Missy C here. I'm new at this blogging gig, but I am not new at voicing an opinion. Or talking about issues, big or small, that concern me or my town.

Here goes:

Stop sign needed ? So I'm a Ray Park gal. I am so concerned over the intersection of Ray Drive and Balboa Avenue. It is a block away from (with Ray Park too) and Ray Drive is the Main Entrance to the Ray Park Neighborhood--i.e., cars are coming and going always up and down the block.

On any given day during the week, between the hours of 8:15 a.m. and 8:35 a.m. you can see parents walking their little ones to Lincoln school and the middle school kids walking up to . There are cars flying up and down Ray (some speeding a swift 35 mphish trying to reach the light on El Camino before it turns red), and I'm telling you, it is a scary corner to stand on and try to cross. I am so concerned that there will be a major injury to someone. 

I can't tell you how many times I've seen a parent with stroller trying to cross, stand hesitantly on the corner trying to peek out to see if it is safe.  

Additionally, it is softball season. As it heads into the summer, there is more traffic, children, and gradparents (or fans) walking, parking, and driving to Ray Park.  As traffic increases, so does the need for a stop sign.
