I cant emphasize how dangerous college point Blvd. is. This isn’t the first death due to cars driving recklessly here. I cross this Blvd. every night to get home from work, and I get a scare 95% of the time ! Cars speeding, not stopping in stop signs, pedestrian right away doesn’t exist in this Blvd. apparently.
