Yikes! Reports of multiple injuries, too.September 5, 2012 3:52 pm at 3:52 pm #512844
Well I hope everyone is OK.
I’d really like to see a road diet with 3 through lanes and curb bump outs as is planned for Mound/Fulton. That would keep things moving but be much safer and friendlier for people.September 5, 2012 3:53 pm at 3:53 pm #512845
wow. that seems wholly related.September 5, 2012 5:13 pm at 5:13 pm #512846
I do hope that everyone is ok as well.
As far as the building, I swear this building is jinxed I have heard it is a big pain in the ass. In addition, it is there looking all bland looking, I think this is a sign it should go. Instead, let us replace it with a food truck/cart pad with some power and a nice mini-park grassy awesomeness. We are going to need some slower two ways for that or a creative protective barrier. Still it would be coolSeptember 5, 2012 5:17 pm at 5:17 pm #512847
Hope no one is too seriously injured!
aside- Great reporting in that story that it was L’Appat Patisserie & Cafe the cab crashed into.September 5, 2012 5:20 pm at 5:20 pm #512848
The sign on top of the building still says L’Appat, no?September 5, 2012 5:24 pm at 5:24 pm #512849
Yeah, what’s Flaxella…
It says L’Appat Patisserie & Cafe.September 5, 2012 5:25 pm at 5:25 pm #512850
But, the large vinyl sign that was hanging over the windows, that the taxi drove through, said Flaxella, I thought.September 5, 2012 5:27 pm at 5:27 pm #512851
I think so, too, but if the taxi drove through that, it would be hard to see…September 5, 2012 5:32 pm at 5:32 pm #512852September 5, 2012 6:20 pm at 6:20 pm #512853
Yeah, L’Appat put their name on the building but never opened there. They opened a year ago in OTE:
Flaxella went into that space and never took down the L’Appat sign for some reason.September 5, 2012 7:17 pm at 7:17 pm #512854
local business a smashing successSeptember 5, 2012 8:08 pm at 8:08 pm #512855
wow. that seems wholly related.
You think road design has nothing to do with safety?September 5, 2012 8:21 pm at 8:21 pm #512856

I think that not every thread on the entire message board needs to have a post about bicycle friendly road design.
None of which would stop a car veering across multiple lanes of traffic, hopping the curb and crashing into a building.September 6, 2012 12:20 am at 12:20 am #512857
The owner of this place is a really nice guy. I hope the insurance money he gets from this helps him buy a real sign. His coffee is awesome and prices are great. I just wish he would have it ready made and had change to break my $20 so I can park!
