Ongoing Danger to pedestrians and bicyclists at PAcific St & Vanderbilt Ave

Vanderbilt Ave. and Pacific St.
January 23, 2012 - 8:18am

I cross this intersection w/ 2 young children in a stroller 5 mornings a week and nearly as frequent as that, I see egregious moving violations. Typically the violation is cars in line on Pacific waiting to turn Left(south) on Vanderbilt, pull out into the oncoming traffic lane and gun their engine to turn left around the line of cars stacked up waiting to turn right. Numerous times I have been cautiously crossing Vanderbilt on the south side of Pacific only to be nearly mowed down by an angry driver aggressively turning left on Vanderbilt. As a driver in the neighborhood, I know that during peak traffic times Pacific and Bergen West-bound become congested as driverse turn off of congested West-bound Atlantic Ave. And too often they lose their patience and commit these dangerous moving violations! Please help!
