The intersection of Green and Elm is so dangerous! There are two stop signs, one at the end of Pond and one at Elm and Green, and drivers just ignore them, sometimes slowing down, but rarely. We need enforcement there, not just during school opening and closing times. I hope the pedestrian who was struck us doing okay!

The Police department needs to be much more proactive with stop sign, red light, cell/texting and crosswalk enforcement throughout the town.

I agree. Pedestrian safety in Marblehead needs more attention.

The Pedestrian who was hit walked into traffic to pull a young girl who wandered into the street out of the path of a car. He got clipped by the SUV but managed to get the girl out of the way.
