A particularly dangerous stretch of road in Hatboro may eventually receive increased safety measures, due to repeated complaints from residents that live there. Car accidents are not a rare occurrence on Warminster Road, and last November a 70-year-old pedestrian was hit by a car and killed as she was crossing the street at Lycoming Avenue. In addition, a 25-year-old pedestrian was killed on South Warminster Road in a hit-and-run car crash in 2011.
Despite the posted limit of 25 miles per hour and frequent speed enforcement by police, people still speed, creating a dangerous situation for pedestrians. Suggested measures to make the road safer and reduce speeding include installing speed bumps, more traffic lights, a flashing warning sign, and sidewalks on both sides of the road. We would like to see this issue addressed before more pedestrians are injured or killed. If you know of any similar accidents at this stretch of road in Hatboro, please contact us.
