California Stop?

Now officially into my second full week at the new place, it’s safe to say that I’ve uncovered one of Kansas City’s more dangerous intersections... or at least the past two days have made it seem that way.

Just yesterday, I was sorting through things here and I heard some screeching and then a collision. It turned out to be a pretty bad wreck at the corner of 16th and Walnut. I didn’t think much of it, both parties seemed to be okay, just a bad mash up. Then, today, as some co-workers and I were doing some work, we hear another set of screeches and then a collision. Today’s wasn’t scary, just hilarious. The LAST person you want to run into after failing to stop at a stop sign is a cop. Oops.

When I worked at the P&L Building I saw an accident at 16th & Walnut about every other week. A couple were pretty severe. It's a bad intersection. It's not very well signed, and on 16th the line of site to oncoming traffic on Walnut is often poor.

My view of 16th & Walnut in my new office is superb, however, the above accident would have been blocked from my view had I been at work when it happened -- the Chambers building obstructs my view of the west side of Walnut.

(Meaning I also can't spy on you. Lucky you.)

This totally reminds me of Dane Cook's "car accident" bit. Sitting inside and hearing the screeching and all.
