Four blocks of Alameda de las Pulgas, a primary school route, are inconsistent with the rest of the Alameda and have a high number of accidents, including several where cars have jumped the curb and even crashed into properties and homes.
The 4 traffic lanes are wide and create a 'raceway' effect on traffic speed. Safety is further compromised by serious visibility issues, including those caused by the terrain, where the major school crossing at Sharon Rd is at the top of the hill where sunlight glare is a factor. Unexpected left turning traffic causes abrupt and dangerous lane changes and distracts drivers attention away from pedestrians,(many are school children) in the road way and crosswalks.
