Rollovers out in the stix is one thing but downtown??? The new normal, I guess.

DLV is the most dangerous street in SB. They should put stop signs on every block. (or every other).

So many accidents. So many more near misses. Its too narrow and crowded and people drive 35+ down the street.

Totally agree with 696. Especially with all the parked cars, it is quite hard at many of the intersections at DLV to see oncoming traffic - which is often speeding WAY too fast down the street. There are a few spots around town that are uselessly dangerous like this. How many accidents need to happen before SB springs for a few new stop signs?

People are getting dumber every day around here. I also speculate that the lack of a quarter-long driver's education course in schools and the prevalence of ridiculously easy online courses has a lot to do with the low caliber of new drivers we have. I wonder if there are any studies on accident rates of younger drivers since most driver's ed went online?

That's actually not a bad intersection and if you're patient and take a look, it's pretty easy to see. There are way worse crossing spots on De La Vina. Stop signs are a bad idea, how about abolishing street parking or making the corner red for further up to make it easier to see for drivers.

740P: Agreed. The intersection one block up @ Canon Perdido is horrible. Big trucks commonly park there (illegally) on the end of the block so you can't see the traffic coming down. DLG @ DLV is much better - it has a red curb for a while before the intersection, so no cars for quite a few spaces before the intersection actually makes for a pretty good spot to cross. For someone to have clipped a truck headed down DLV at 6am when it's still dark, either the truck's lights were off, or the sedan driver is simply an idiot. Crossing these intersections at night (or early morning) can be much easier than usual since headlights are a pretty clear indicator of oncoming traffic.

I bet the truck was speeding and the driver of the car didn't take sufficient time to look.

I worked at the building (former CallWave HQ) at CP and DLV for about a year and there were constant screeches and horn blowing all day long. In a thirty meeting, we counted 21 horn blows and 15 screeches and 5 pedestrians yelling profanities.

Why the city doesn't put a stop sign here, bewilders me. But then, politics (local and federal and in between) bewilder me.

Speed limit on De la Vina was 25 until the city council raised it to 30. Anyone remember the reasoning?

Actually the truck was not speeding, the lady ran a stop sign..failed to stop and ran right into the truck. Nice assumption though @775. If you look at the police report the lady was in a honda accord and hit a toyota tundra, obviously she was the one speeding if she ran a truck into a tree and flipped it on its side. The driver of the truck was able to clumb out but is obviously injured since he was body slammed into the pavement with glass in his arm.
