Bike accident at Elliot Dr. and O'Connor

Dear Council Members,

Yesterday evening around 6pm my daughter was involved in a traffic
accident. A pick up truck hit her front tire while she was crossing the

My daughter stopped on Elliot and then started to turn left into O'Connor
when the pickup truck hit her bike. She was already in the middle of the
street, and the truck barely missed her and struck her front tire. She had
a very bad fall and I am thankful that nothing major happened. However, I
am profoundly distraught by watching the accident myself and wandering how
come there is not a stop sign at that cross street. The position of that
crossing leaves bikers without a lot of visibility and may cause worst
accidents than ours.

I urged you to make changes for the security of our kids. It is my
understanding that there is an Upper Laurel/Willows Neighborhood study that
has been approved and keeps getting delayed. Please make the changes to
make this neighborhood safer.

Best Regards
