Car accident on Webster and Forest Palo Alto Issues, posted by PAresident1, a resident of the University South neighborhood, on Feb 14, 2013 at 10:14 am
There was a nasty accident on Webster and Forest last night (2/13) Cadillac t-boned an Audi dragging it over 60 feet! Part of the problem is the intersection with a 2 way stop instead of 4 way stop. Lots of traffic, out of neighborhood drivers and you have a disaster waiting to happen. I have personally seen cars whizzing by 30-35 miles an hour on the neighborhood street...we have two young kids and constantly worry about their safety while crossing this terrible intersection.

That is a VERY dangerous intersection. Forest has the stop; Webster is open. It is virtually impossible for a driver on Forest to see oncoming Webster traffic, even stopped. You stop, say a prayer, and gun it.
The solution is so simple even our city government ought to see it: make that intersection a 4-way stop.
