Wilmington has more than its fair share of crosswalks, and there is one on the edge of downtown that has caught our attention. You may have passed through the crosswalk on Front Street right in front of the PPD building. It is one of the heaviest used crosswalks in the city, and according to one concerned citizen, it is also a dangerous one. The citizen said, "It does create a potential disaster waiting to happen. And it would be really terrible to see someone get run over here. I haven't seen many police here, but they have been here directing traffic, it could be a problem." The posted speed limit is 25 miles per hour, but the person we spoke to says he sees most drivers go a lot faster than that. He says most people coming in and out of downtown Wilmington seem to be either in a rush to get into downtown, or a rush to get out.
