I currently live on St. Andrew's Church Rd in California, MD, and nearly every day I come home and tell my girlfriend how horrifying it is to wait to turn onto Sandra Ln. as cars fly past on both sides. Driving on that road every day I see at least one near-miss accident, people jamming their brakes, or swerving onto the shoulder at high speeds to pass a turning car. Just coming home from a simple grocery trip can be a terrifying experience.

Two nights ago my worst fears were realized; our friend who was traveling to our house and turning onto our street was rear ended. She is fine, but the other people involved were not. My heart goes out to the families, and I feel this tragedy could have been avoided if traffic was properly controlled on this road.

I'm petitioning for a traffic light at the intersection of Indian Bridge Rd. and St. Andrew's Church Rd., a drastic drop in the speed limit after the intersection, a middle turning lane on the straightaway following the intersection, or a combination of these options. Drivers constantly treat this road as a highway when truly the entire road is nothing but a residential area, and it's extremely dangerous to drive on. There have been countless accidents on this road, and this change absolutely must happen.

I will have moved by the time this potential work has been completed, but I'm hoping that this will save many lives in the future, and a lot of families from heartache and pain.
