Wanted: Scary Intersections

Do you know of a road or intersection that is impossible to cross?
We want to see it!
Document it through video and post it on YouTube. Then let us know. We will select a video at the end of February that best shows the need for a law requiring drivers to stop for pedestrians at crosswalks.
The winning person will receive a one-year premium Active Transportation Alliance Membership and T-shirt.

Your video should:

  • Show the need for a law requiring drivers to stop for pedestrians at crosswalks
  • Show a vehicle failing to yield to a pedestrian in an intersection
  • The intersection should have no stop signs or traffic lights
  • Preferably an intersection with busy pedestrian traffic including children
  • Be no more than five minutes in length
  • Be posted on YouTube no later than February 19, 2010
