  1. That spot in the road, with increased traffic from Walgreens is going to need a light.

  2. There is a light before and after Walgreens. Drivers should be slowing down for the light at Edmonds Way and 100th and not speeding through the area. Even if enough people requested that a light be installed right at the Walgreens/PCC driveway, the state would have to approve it since Edmonds Way is a state highway.

  3. And with the proposed increased, high density, high-rise Westgate re-development plan, this crash scenario will become even more commonplace!

  4. They should put a Bowling Alley there instead.

    • Good idea….LMFAO~

  5. I think it’s most likely that we’ll see the challenges of the density and adapt to it, like we always do. I don’t think that the term high density or high-rise accurately describes what we’ll see built in Edmonds.

    • We already have high density Matt, and I don’t see us adapting to it at all.I just see more traffic and less common courtesy. Just ask the lady that just HAD to get that parking spot at QFC yesterday, who cares who was waiting for it, or that she almost got hit..she got the spot!
