Our living room windows look out on an intersection of four narrow streets. One-way streets come in from north and west, and one-way streets leave towards east and south. West has right-of-way, and often cars blaze through at or above the legal 50 km/h limit with no chance of stopping, should “North” neglect the right-of-way. It’s a ticking time bomb.
Just as Ricarda was leaving for work, a crash finally happened. Luckily no-one was hurt â€” this time. I can only hope that nothing more serious will happen someday, as there is a playground just one block away and lots of kids cross this intersection to get there or back.
