The Pre-Shabbos Car Crush

S. emails: “I live on Whitworth between Beverly drive and Robertson and every week we have 4 to 5 car accidents on this Stretch. I sometimes worry on Shabbat when kids and families crossing the intersections without the stop signs. Do have a perspective on how to fix this? 90% of accidents are Orthodox Jews going on a Shabbat mission or Jewish holiday mission. It is dangerous to drive on Friday morning in this neighborhood. Any solutions?”
