A recent car accident prompted estevens to share concerns about a traffic problem in our area in the forum. We wanted to bring it to the attention of readers:
Hello fellow Magnolia-ites. I was on my way home this evening and came to the intersection at 28th and Ruffner and witnessed a very scary car accident. I know that every day I have to drive through that intersection I pray that as I slowly creep out to see if I can cross 28th I don’t have a car slam in to me. Well the poor lady tonight, that did the same creep that I do every day, wasn’t so lucky. Thankfully no one was injured but the cars were totaled.
Of all the intersections I have crossed in my life that one is by far the scariest. I think that there has to be something we can do to petition the city to make that a 4 way stop. I can’t really think of any reason why that wouldn’t work. The traffic on 28th doesn’t ever seem to be to heavy so I really don’t think it would cause any congestion. All I know is that there is no way to safely see if there is a car coming especially since cars park on 28th completely impeding any visibility. My other concern is that there is no cross walk there and my daughter has to cross that street every day as her bus stop is on the south east corner of 28th and Ruffner/Manor Place. If any one else shares these concerns please help me come up with a solution to make our community a safer place.
