yeah... this happens all too often. too many rude selfish jerks driving around out there who have the crummy "me first" &"i'm the only one who matter" attitudes.

i'm so sick and tired of the jerks who run red lights.

it happens all the time at the intersection of 38th and federal hwy in oakland park. everyone going north or south on federal feel the need to run that light and the ones who make their left turn to head west on 38th blatantly run the red when their light is clearly a red light and they should stop and let the others who have the green light go and have their turn. i see it every time i am sitting at the intersection on 38th trying to make my left turn to go north on federal hwy. when jerks run the red light i honk at them to let them know that i see the foolishness they are committing! this is an intersection that clearly needs a few red light cameras! those red light cameras will pay for themselves if a few are put at 38th and federal!

patience is a virtue that very few in south florida posses. most people in south florida are driving on a suspended license and or got their license as a prize at the bottom of a cereal box.

by the way, just because you pass your driving test doesn't give you full right to ignore the rules of the road and drive how ever you want to drive after the fact!

I am literally scared to ride me motorcycle cuz I have cheated death more than 5 or six times at the 10 blocks to the beach, I have to get up at sunrise on weekends to make it for a peaceful cruise down A1A, not worth the stress of intersection roulette, I have to stop on green to survive..

At East Oakland Park and Powerline? I think it would be West Oakland Park and Powerline. Harris was probably driving East on Oakland Park.

S-S: once again, check your facts, I believe you reported a traffic fatality a few months back involving a Mini on Dixie Highway in Oakland Park. Therefore, this was not the first Oakland Park fatality this year.

very sad and heard of way too often. If I'm first to go at an intersection then I wait a few seconds before going. Yes I get honked at sometimes, but sometimes it's worth it when I see that car running a red light and flying by over 60-70 mph. People need to slow the F down!

Check the article again- it clearly states 'WILTON MANORS' at the very beginning of the article (which indicates the city in which the crash occurred) and then tells of an Oakland Park woman who was killed.

Unfortunately, EAST Oakland Park Blvd. and Powerline Rd. do not intersect, however WEST Oakland Park Blvd. and Powerline Rd. do.

people need to wake up, i don't know if it's the season or what, but it seems like the road is full of complete sleepers.

i almost got smashed into last night also, someone completely had a red light, good thing I looked both ways.

THe artcle is poorly written. It doesn't indicate if her car was t-boned or rear ended, one has to guess. The article only states that both cars were on Powerline. Just bad reporting, must have been done by an intern writer. But isn't that the whole staff of this newspaper?

that's when they're not assigned to "hall duty" *** monitoring posts at the "forums",(which are nothing but a bunch of bored housewives and clerical types posting from "work").

She was driving eastbound on West Oakland Park Blvd. She had the green light, and drove into the intersection.

He was driving southbound on Powerline Rd. He had the red light, but continued into the intersection anyway. He t-boned her, which killed her.
