People in the Chicago area recently expressed their concern regarding an intersection near a school after pedestrians, which include grade school students, are becoming involved in accidents, an article of NBC Chicago reported on March 16.
The community wanted to have a stop sign installed at the intersection of Austin and Cornelia due to increasing accident rates. The Chicago Academy grade school reportedly is near the busy intersection. A concerned parent stated that they have seen many accidents taking place near the intersection. In a recent incident, a boy struck a parked vehicle with his bicycle after a moving vehicle apparently interrupted him. In another incident, two young girls became victims of a hit-and-run accident near the intersection on their way to school. The office of Alderman Gilbert Villegas has coordinated with the state’s Department of Transportation to address the issue.
