FYI: Optional to meet at REI at 8:15 am to bike together to the site. I miss Matt, think of him all the time, ride through that intersection frequently, watching out for cars running lights as much as I can.

One occupant of a house on that corner, Washington and Indian School, told me that there are crashes there all the time.  Traffic is too fast, people run the lights and collisions happen too often.  This is an intersection where extra caution is necessary no matter what vehicle we are driving.
