This is not the first accident to take place at this intersection. The posted speed limit for this location is 35 MPH. Unfortunately, a number of motorists will drive at whatever speed the neighboring cars are traveling. Whenever driving, be aware of the posted speed limit. Speed limits are designed to keep vehicles moving at a safe speed.
Talbert Avenue, Between Edwards Street and Springdale Street
Not even the police are safe at this dangerous intersection. In 2006, an unmarked police cruiser was parked on Talbert near Edwards Street. A second vehicle collided with the police car sending both drivers to the hospital. This area is obviously well enforced but a ticket should be the least of your worries.
