Despite Sloat Avenue having crosswalks, drivers often speed and fail to yield to pedestrians or other drivers. Many pedestrians and drivers have been injured or killed due to reckless drivers. Early March of 2013, a seventeen-year-old girl's life was taken while walking home. In November of 2011, three were injured as another car crashed into them, and another person was killed in January of 2009. Drivers on Sloat tend to go over the speed limit, and stop signs or additional traffic lights would reduce the amount of time drivers spend at high speeds.
