That intersection has been a problem for a long time. There is no left turn lane. People take chances and cut each other off. It doesn't help that the kids, going and coming, to school don't know how to cross the street properly. They keep crossing the street even when the don't walk sign is flashing. Yesterday, at the accident, some of the kids crossed even after the light turned yellow. They did it right in front of all those cops and nothing was said to them.
