New See Me Flags in Arlington Making the Crosswalk Safer for Pedestrians in Westover

Thanks to an anonymous donor we installed new See Me Flags at the Westover Market Crosswalk on Washington Blvd. This is the location where a women was struck by a car in November of last year (2018) while using the crosswalk to cross Washington Blvd - ARLNow Story

Local residents have been clamoring for years to try and get improvements made to the crosswalk but both Arlington County and the State of Virginia have denied requests to reduce the speed to 25 MPH and put in flashing lights. Hopefully, the new See Me Flags will help making cross the street safer when going to the Westover Beer Garden to meet friend or walking to the Italian Store for a Milano sandwich.
