What's happening in Pacifica?!!!! It's never been as dangerous as it is NOW to be a pedestrian OR driver! SOMETHING NEEDS to be done! These occurrences should be a major concern of our City Council to work on solutions to this DEADLY problem!

Pacifica has had more and more of these incidents, my family has experienced it. drivers need to be careful, hope pacifica truly recognizes that its a problem.

It is not just the driver's who are at fault, it's these intersections that need modernization, this intersection in particular is very dangerous with a blind-eye turn and a lifted center.
