    I really like the Western thing. At rush hour, when Western can get backed up to Roscoe from Addison, I’ve seen people go into the center lane almost all the way back to Roscoe and run up to the Addison left turn lane. If there’s a nice island in their way (and it *has* to have curbs), they can’t.

    I was at the Fed Ex this weekend near Western and Cornelia, and I was watching some people try to cross the street. Every car was ignoring the crosswalk. It took the peds such a long time to get across. And they were trying to get to a school! So happy something is going in to protect those students.
