It seems very common for someone to get hit or killed on Knights, crossing Street Road!! If I am not mistaken, this is the same route that our now Lt. Gov. Cawley( Commissioner at the time) said was a very enjoyable route and would not be dangerous to the older and disabled folks of Creekside Apartments after he argued in defense of the political trick of moving the polling place over one mile away accross Street Road. Typical voter suppression stuff, but actually could have been very fatal!

This area between the entrance to Bucks Meadows and the entrance to Walgreens is a disaster waiting to happen. It is nearly impossible to see a pedestrian crossing this section of road at night until you are practically on top of them. Something most definitely needs to be done to light up the area at night to avoid future accidents.
