While the traffic accident that killed Donovan Maldonado was a tragedy, perhaps there will be some good that can arise out of that situation.
While driving recently in Clovis south on Peach Avenue near Alluvial Avenue, there are two bicycle/pedestrian crossings that are exactly like the one where the horrific accident occurred on Shepherd in Fresno. Several bicyclists went across without looking for traffic and the angle of their crossing was very difficult to view from driving my car. This was in the afternoon during daylight hours.
Perhaps the City of Clovis will get ahead of this curve prior to death and all the accompanying chaos and drama and do something, since this is clearly a design error. Hopefully the “way of life” will not include the horrific event that occurred in Fresno.
