ABC7News Spotlights Crash Problem

ABC7News reporter Horace Holmes did a great job with his feature on storefront crashes in the Washington, D.C. area, which aired last night on WJLA TV: http://wjla.com/features/7-on-your-side/council-seeks-solutions-to-alarming-rise-of-vehicle-crashes-into-stripmall-storefronts.

We shot much of the report at a strip shopping center in Hyattsville, Maryland (near Landover), which has experienced numerous crashes over the last few years — so many that a couple of store owners spent money out of their own pockets to have some basic bollards installed in front of their shops when the property owner refused to provide any kind of barrier.

Holmes and I also demonstrated the added hazard posed by wheel stops in the center's front-in parking spaces.

Be sure to include @ABC7Horace and @ABC7News if you share their piece on social media. Thanks!
