It seems like EVERY WEEK, an accident at the busy intersection of Camino Tassajara & Crow Canyon Blvd is listed in the Weekly Police Log. I usually look for it and seem to always find one listed.

The streets are very wide and it takes a while to cross the streets safely.

The wait at the intersection for autos is long and, in all likelihood, some try to scoot through.

The Town shoud consider upgrading signals to those that have the "countdown" feature --- where it shows the number of seconds remaining. This always gets my attention and I won't try to cut it too close if its down in the low, single digits.

Whether this approach or another, the incidence of traffic accidents has increased in the many years we have been residents. We now have three schools in the area now, whereas, just a few years ago there were none. Let's make sure we have a safer interesection.

Does anyone have more detail on the crash Friday night 10/28 at Camino Tassajara and Jasmine? It looked really bad.
