Margate needs safer streets and intersections, says a resident during the May 19 Commission meeting.
We need 4-way stop signs, especially at intersections next to the playground. Winchester & Benson, Winchester and Decatur.
Hate to say it, but it’s an accident waiting to happen. A death trap.
These streets handle higher than normal levels of municipal vehicle traffic.
Mayor Becker is already aware of this public safety issue.
Winchester Speedway; drivers avoid stop-n-go of Ventnor Ave.
A Margate resident described a close call he witnessed recently. A young mother pushing a baby carriage across the street. Almost a disaster. Averted at the last second.
After 3 minutes passed, Mayor Becker dispatched the public safety request to Margate Police Chief Hankinson.
Margate Public Safety Commisioner John Amodeo had no comment.
