Prospect Park Southwest Demolition Derby in Windsor Terrace

PPSW Hit Car

The Windsor Terrace Alliance posted pics of the aftermath of a hit-and-run accident (no injuries) on Prospect Park SW in Windsor Terrace yesterday around 12:30 in the morning. They write:
Fortunately, no one was injured but residents have had many complaints about this street, from speeding cars and motorcycles to excessive truck noise. Something must be done to rethink and find solutions for the traffic patterns on this street.
In an email, the Alliance's Lauren Collins added: "It's a wide street and is treated like a speedway by some drivers." Similar problems exist on Prospect Park West and there have been proposals to add bike lanes and return it to being a two-way street. Prospect Park SW, however, is already a two-way thoroughfare.

we have the same problems on 15th street, only it's a one-way coming off a traffic circle with nary a stop sign to slow down maniacs.

The problem lies with NYPD, they do not ticket speeding drivers enough. In other cities, speeding is less prevalent due to the fear of getting a moving violation.
