POLL: Most Dangerous Road in Largo for Pedestrians
Which road in Largo is the most challenging for pedestrian safety? What would make it better?
As many residents are aware, Largo had another pedestrian fatality recently.
A Largo woman crossing East Bay Drive was hit and killed on Sept. 7. The pedestrian walked against the pedestrian signal at the intersection of Fulton Street and East Bay Drive around 11:46 p.m., according to authorities.
Pedestrian fatalities are apparently not isolated incidents in Largo. In July, a pedestrian crossing Seminole Boulevard at 110th Avenue North was hit and killed when he walked into the path of a Ford Taurus.
Earlier this year, there were three pedestrian fatalities in three weeks. The pedestrians were not in crosswalks, according to authorities.
Largo continues to work with special grant funds to curb this unsettling trend with an education and enforcement program focused on Missouri Avenue, East Bay Drive and Ulmerton Road.
Are there certain roads or intersections in Largo that you feel are dangerous for pedestrians? If so, what can be done to improve them?
