Tell Us: The Worst Intersections in Glendora

Are there any dangerous intersections in Glendora?

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?

Most of that Lone Hill area is brilliantly under engineered while the Market Place revenue pours in. That makes sense. Can't wait for all the restaurants and so forth to open up by Costco and make things even worse...Let's add another signal ! God help us on that.

Lorraine had needed repaving for the last 20 years from Sierra Madre to Route 66 ! It never gets any maintenance while the cracks and so forth beat up my cars. For that matter, several major roads are neglected rather than attended to.

Those Oak trees are not helping matters. Ever drive along there at night or in bad weather? I'm surprised no one had died since they are in the right lane if you are not familiar with the area.

School buses I'd prefer. Agreed, the mommies are pathetic lazy promoters of obesity.

Those Botts Dots are a complete waste. The guy invented them for highways to keep drivers alert they are drifting from their lane. I hate them however, over the years, the local public roads get them to take place of the painted lines which, after about 6 months, turn almost black thus, no lines. I'm for painted lanes and the paint with the sparkle in it. Reflectors and Botts Dots can't do it all on their own.
