Attention needed for pedestrian and cyclist safety
8/27/2020, 6 p.m.
The attention of all mayoral candidates should be drawn to the dangerous situation at 17th and Dock streets, where most people get on the Virginia Capital Trail in Richmond.
A traffic light is badly needed there and the City of Richmond’s Traffic Engineering has been deaf to many pleas. It is just a matter of time before someone is killed.
The blinking lights that must be activated by pushing a button are useless. Motorists speed through this area all day.
