3 have died in a 1 mile radias from accidents. 2 on JD and 1 on Lonetree just a few blocks south of JD and Lonetree way. The speed limit is 45. These are narrow 2 and 3 lane roads. why not 35 for lonetree and 25 for JD? its 45 miles and hour on all roads. this isn't a small town with cornfields anymore. it's not a small metropolitan region. It's houses crammed together with thousands of cars every hour. and when H4 opens this next week (or did they stall that project?), lonetree will have much fewer cars. Fewer cars mean less accidents but when cars a bunched up in a traffic jam, there is little chance of being in a deadly accident (unless your a pedestrian). now that half the traffic will rerout to Hillcrest and the new H4 bypass, Lonetree will be a racetrack. They should slow it down to 35.

J.D> Blvd has lots of crashes and pedestrian deaths. All those turns and I still believe the speed limit is 45? or did they slow it down? I was just thinking about this the other day. There is a turn on LoneTree when you turn off of J.D. and head southeast. I believe before you get to Dallas Ranch. It's 45 miles an hour. That's near highway speeds. Kids have to cross the light there and at golf/bluerock as well. They need a foot bridge like they have on ygnacio in Walnut Creek. They build a pedestrian arch bridge in Walnut Creek for bike riders but the state wont pay for one for the children of South East Antioch?? Time the lights better and slow the traffic to 35. On first rainy days of the season it's very slick and the turns on James and Lonetree are very sharp. P.S. this is not for the liberal attorneys to take advantage of. We're already being forced to file bankruptsy from what I read last year. We're the next fairfield.
