BLAIN LINDSEY WHO HAS LIVED ALONG MBCREGOR BLVD FOR FOUR YEARS HAS SEEN HIS FAIR SHARE OF ACCIDENTS.

We've seen accidents right outside our front door.

12:30:05-12:30.11

From colonial and downtown people tend to go as fast as it is on 41.

CROSSING--

5:20:21 i'd rather stop for a longer period of time at a major intersection just so i feel safer

HAS ALSO BEEN A DIFFICULT PROBLEM FROM BIKERS AND WALKERS-

12:30:12-12:30:14

Sometimes it's concerning and scary.

THAT'S WHY FORT MYERS COUNCIL MEMBER MICHAEL FLANDERS-- IS PUSHING FOR THIS PLAN THAT WOULD ADD SEVERAL CROSSWALKS BETWEEN VICTORIA AVE AND BRAMAN AVENUE.

AND ADD MID BLOCK SPEED HUMPS, AND MORE POLICE ENFORCEMENT TO SLOW DOWN THOSE SPEEDERS.

12:30:58-12:31:06

I'm a runner myself and my daughter just got a bike for Christmas so we tend to cross at the cross walk but there is not one here.
