    a walkover would be very beneficial in that area for all pedestrians.


    one of the thermometers "number killed" at that intersection is a perfect idea act1966.

    We play Frogger at that intersection every year. I was happy to see the crosswalks last year. Unfortunately, the lights weren't timed right, and some of the pedestrian lights didn't work right. Hopefully that's been fixed. I'd love to see a pedestrian bridge! We love Aruba and love La Cabana. Going to Super Foods is part of the "experience" and one we talk to our friends about when they are going to come with us. I will remember to bring my safety green shirt this year to make sure we are visible, even in the cross walks.

    Wow that is so sad. I usually walk to super foods from La Cabana but take a cab back because I usually have too many groceries. Its only a $7 fare. However, after this report I will cab it going and coming. But if I take a cab, might as well go to Lings which I have not been to in a very long time.

    It's a video game from 1981 where you try to get a frog across a busy road without getting hit by a car. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frogger

    Be very careful Andrea - Frogger was SO addicting! One of my kids was playing an updated version on a handheld game thing - can't remember which kid or which device, but I lost a few hours of my life with those little frog lives in my hands!
