Mesa Lane Traffic History

There was an accident on Cliff Dr and Mesa Lane, it was called Flora Vista in the late 1960's. The accident
took the life of a little boy named Chipper Nelson. He was on his way home from school and lived on
Murrell Rd just like we did. We as parents had gone to meetings after meetings asking for a stop light at
that corner and no one listened until after Chipper was killed.
I just wondered if there is any information in the archives of Santa Barbara about that stop light on Cliff Dr
and Flora Vista/Mesa Lane? Even now, when I drive by that lite, I say' "that light is because Chipper gave his
little life for it so others could go on to the upper grades."
