I am a visitor from Buffalo, N.Y., and have driven down Ocean Boulevard at least 10 times since my visit began. I try to be very aware of the people at the crosswalks along the way. I do, however, find it very difficult to see people when they are in the middle of the street hidden by the palm trees.
Who was the rocket scientist that designed the foliage to go in the middle of the street? The trees are beautiful, but the obstructed view is dangerous. Shorter foliage would make it much easier for drivers to see people who have made it to the middle of the road.
