PENNDOT, Does Someone Have to Die Before You Act?
If I have to do little videos of this intersection once a week I think I will do it at this point. PENNDot knows this intersection sucks. They have studied it long enough to have a Doctorate of Intersection.
I think State Rep. Greg Vitali needs to take more of an interest, a personal interest...after all I hate when I feel like I am getting the political fluff off, and that is the way his staff makes me feel. It's not that they are rude, they just seem disinterested...I can tell they don't think this has any importance. I understand Greg Vitali has his enviromental initiatives and that seems to be pretty much all he is interested in, but I don't think this part of his district has ever made rigorous demands on him over the years, have they? So why not take the time for it? Right?
And I have also not heard back yet from anyone in State Senator Daylin Leach's office on this, and to be honest that is very surprising, so maybe people are on vacation or whatever?
State Rep. Tim Brigg's office has been very responsive and have been in contact with PENNDot - and they are doing this for the Lower Merion residents affected by this intersection - remember this intersection is in the 5th ward of Haverford Township, Delaware County ---- which again puts it in Greg Vitali's lap.
Commissioners Jeff Heillman (HT) and Scott Zelov (LMT) are concerned about this intersection and are trying to get people moving, but at the end of the day, it all comes down to PENNDot and if they give a crap. I say they don't give a crap because they could have done things about this intersection YEARS ago.
And somehow I don't think our governor of the wandering eye will be of any help as he is I am sure busy trying to deny rumors of yet another affair- but then again, they have been talking about Rendell and his "large" appetites since he was D.A. One would think either his wife is immune or they have an open marriage? But hey, maybe if we stand Dr. Kirstin Snow at the intersection, more in Harrisburg will take notice?
I will keep on writing about this intersection at Penn Street and Lancaster Ave until something is done besides vague promises of "we'll look into it". It's time. To me human life does have value. And again, I want to thank NBC10 for giving this so much attention the other day. It's terrific of them.
