A recent Largo Patch story about the death of an 82-year-old pedestrian on Seminole Boulevard has drawn lots of reaction from our readers.
Several people commented that conditions on Seminole Boulevard aren't safe for pedestrians or motorists.
"The city of Largo needs to put more lights out in that area," posted maria. "It is way too dark at night and they as well need to fix that light on the corner of where McDonalds and Seminole Blvd is at. After a certain time at night it blinks red only and its dangerous."
"How many more deaths have to take place before any action is taken other than playing the blame game," commented Leroy A Haggard. "That is an extremely dangerous corner to cross. A lot of talk but no action."
"I alone can remember 6 deaths in that stretch in the past yr. which one was a close friend," posted BjG. "It's starting to become a city negligence as well as drivers.... How can this be fixed because this is a huge discrace on the city of largo as well..."
Some readers chimed in to express condolences for the victim, Margaret Wix. And an employee of Animal Hospital of Seminole used the comments section on Patch to help reconnect Wix's dog — which she had apparently been looking for at the time she was struck — with Wix's family in Tennessee.
"What wonderful work you all do servicing the community!" wrote Maryann mosher balbo about the efforts by several local rescuers and community members to help the dog find its family.
