Forgive this residents speculation but I get a sense people are FRUSTRATED getting through this Jackson ave. corridor by those ridiculous construction impedements all over this street between St. Eds and the train crossing. After sitting through umpteen lights people are jumpy to get out of this area and may be impulsively rushing. Why is this location all restricted and why is nobody actually working morning and night to get done whatevever it is they are supposed to be doing? There wasn't a single worker there today on Jackson amongst the army of orange barrels!

100% agree...I'm tired of looking at those orange barrels - At the time of this accident you would think workers SHOULD be there.

the construction debris may be a minute part of a very large problem in our area.....excessive speed and distracted and or agressive drivers....and many of them are not young people but the more "mature " idiots behind the wheel!!
