Danger In The Dark
I am an Arverne resident who lives near Beach 73rd Street and Rockaway
Due to the several street lights that no longer illuminate, the area is dark and dangerous at night. I have witnessed several cars turn off of Beach 73rd into the wrong lane on Rockaway Beach Boulevard. The darkness prevents many drivers from seeing the median. There was once a pole there but it was knocked down several months ago by a driver. In the past two weeks there have been two car accidents. In the first accident a driver lost control and ended up facing oncoming traffic in front of Stop & Shop. Police and FDNY were called to the scene. Last night (8/19/13) another car ended up on the median and had to be towed away. This is a HUGE public safety issue that needs to be addressed. Please help in turning the lights back on before a fatality occurs.
