When two cars collided in the Glendora Marketplace Sunday, some Patch readers called for a traffic signal at the busy intersection. Others believed a traffic signal would only back up traffic and create more hazards.
There are several factors that contribute to a dangerous intersection, including a high speed limit, an awkward engineering design, or drivers’ tendency to make illegal turns.
According to Glendora Police Chief Rob Castro, local police will sometimes monitor a known troublesome intersection and nab drivers making illegal turns.
The city’s engineering department will also monitor intersections for traffic safety.
But are there intersections you think the city should pay more attention to? What do you think would help decrease the safety hazards in that area? Which intersection gets your vote as the most dangerous in Glendora?
