This section of the Aurora Avenue Bride – and much of Aurora Avenue in general – has long been one of the most dangerous stretches of road in the entire city of Seattle. There are far too many car accidents crashes, compared to similar streets. Drivers often exceed the (already high) speed limit, and there are serious concerns about street design, lane reductions and merging.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the families of the deceased, and the injured victims.


Another problem on Aurora Avenue? A lack of safe pedestrian crossings.
