According to a press release from the City of Atlanta, "Atlanta City Councilmember Cleta Winslow introduced legislation on Tuesday, September 3rd, requesting that the Office of Transportation perform a traffic analysis of the intersections of Peeples Street, White Street and Rose Circle, S.W."
“Recently two young ladies were seriously injured by a man who was driving a stolen vehicle, and ran into the girls while they were in the West End community,” Winslow said. “Where these three streets come together, there is Rose Circle Park where children play, Brown Middle School and Impact Church that has three services on Sundays.”
In addition to the brutality of the incident, Councilmember Winslow expressed concern that the perpetrator escaped and was at large for several days.
Councilmember Winslow stated that “the legislation she introduced regarding public safety would be greatly enhanced if the analysis yields some recommendations to install pedestrian crosswalks and other traffic calming devices in this area.”
According to the office of Cleta Winslow, who runs for re-election in November, "she remains committed to the issue of Public Safety and between 2000 and 2012, new sidewalks have been installed and sidewalk repairs have been made within the West End community."
