Photo: Three Car Accident On Emmons And Bedford

2

Bedford Avenue and Emmons Avenue was home to a three car accident at around 9:00 a.m. today. It’s unclear what caused the accident, but tipster Andrey G. said the corner is a constant problem in the neighborhood:

I would imagine that today’s accident follows the same scenario. Almost every week an accident happens on that corner because those who want to make a left turn onto Bedford Ave cannot see the oncoming traffic. The DOT either needs to install an additional left turn traffic light (like it did at Ocean and SB Rd) or put up a No Standing sign on W-bound Emmons Ave 25 ft before the corner.

  1. Andrey G. is right, it’s just about impossible to see oncoming traffic when turning left onto Bedford. I hate that intersection.

  2. Most of the intersectiions along Emmons Ave are bad.  With all the big SUVs and the lack of turn signals, its a wonder that there aren’t even more accidents.  I take those turns very slowly – I inch up until I can see the traffic

  3. Exactly right.  There should be no cars parked or standing on the corner of the island side of Emmons Ave – especially since this hood is full of cars speeding to lights.

  4. I liked this page, only because of what Andrey G. said.

    what is that like the 40th car accident on that corner?

  5. I live on that corner and look forward to seeing the chaos and hearing the screeching tires which notify me to look out and see the mayhem……the winter months are just too boring without these accidents.
