Residents want traffic light at Euclid/Earles intersection
On October 7, 2013, Wilma Yerex, 72, died after being hit by a car while crossing at the intersection of Euclid Ave. and Earles St.
So on October 7, 2013, Renfrew-Collingwood residents held a rally at the intersection where Wilma was struck.
Marlene White was a friend of Wilma Yerex.
In a recent interview with The Vancouver Courier ( Jennifer Thuncher - Oct 30/13 edition), White said that she has:
".... been in touch with the city several times to say the crosswalk is dangerous but nothing has been done."
In response to White's comments, Jerry Dobrovolny, director of transportation for the City of Vancouver, told the Courier:
" This intersection itself is equipped with signage - it has a zebra-paint crosswalk marking and it has got curb bulging on either side so it actually has got quite a bit of the safety features that we design in to improve safety at crosswalks..."
However, according to the Courier, residents of Renfrew-Collingwood found Dobrovlny's comments unconvincing.
Do you live close to the intersection of Earles and Euclid?
What are your thoughts concerning the safety of this intersection for pedestrians?
I look forward to hearing from you.
