I believe it has more to do with the people who drive on North Ave then the speed that they travel on it. There are quite a few streets in Chicago that people speed on yet North has the most fatalitis. Its gang infested from Ashland to Harlem. Lots of the thugs travel this road looking for trouble and often find it. Stay away from Armitage and Fullerton as well as the same elements uae these to. If you're looking for a road to take westuse Irving park or Belmont. Which is north of North ave. If you need a road going west south of North your in trouble because the area gets noticable worse the mose south you go. Unless you need to score crack or heroin south of North ave is where its at and that would make you part of the element Im speaking of.

well look at the bright side of this death.

It wasn't the result of those moron black and immigrant drug dealers on the south side shooting up the hood.

Drunk drivers are the least cause of death on North Avenue. From Austin Blvd/Austin Avenue all the way east to the lake shore, North Avenue is all endless, nonstop ghetto. Shootings, cold blooded homicides, armed robberies, and east of Ashland it gets even worse with all the even more lethal, and highly predatory, flash mobs, which are even brazen enough practically to be serial cop killers! And when those flash mobs attack, they attack in huge packs and swarms, just like piranha, they attack with big AK-47s, Mac-10s, and some of the most lethal weaponry you can imagine! And unlike the gangs which usually concentrate their violence towards rival gangs, flash mobs concentrate all of their violence towards innocent people, and only innocent people! They are even known to attack CTA trains and buses, as well as even taxis!

Drug dealers and violent felons ARE NOT ALL BLACK!!! Drug dealers and violent felons/killers come in ALL races, ages, and colors. They come in White/Caucasian, Asian, Mexican, Hispanic, American, Canadian, you name it! Yes, there are a few drug runners/violent felons that are African/African American, but criminals still come in all races and all colors! In fact, some of the most infamous crimes in America were perpetrated by white people, especially including, for instance, the 1997 North Hollywood shootout, and the case of the infamous Texas Seven.

Also, the "south side hood" actually covers Chicago proper all the way north to Lawrence Avenue (4800 north!), and all the way south to Steger Road (23100 south). So in fact, when you talk of the south side hood, you are actually talking of a ghetto that is roughly 36 miles nonstop from north to south!

28 people shot on Sunday. A new record and it never made the news.
