Fifth-grader concerned about traffic conditions


My name is Aiden Lamb. I am a fifth-grader at Henry Haight Elementary school.

When I walked home a few months ago, I pressed the button to cross Santa Clara Avenue at Willow Street. The flashing lights turned on, and three of my friends and I started to cross the street in the crosswalk. We all suddenly had to stop because a silver car zoomed right in front of us.

This is why I would like to have a stoplight at Santa Clara Avenue and Willow Street. It is also why I would like the residents of Alameda to be more careful and aware when driving through the streets of Alameda.
