The acute turn from Avenida Peru onto Via España has always been dangerous because cars and pedestrians often can't see one another in time to make proper adjustments. Moving the crosswalk a few meters to the left would reduce that problem, but the problem is that both advertisers and drivers are given higher priority than pedestrians.

Further on, we have two lanes of traffic turning left off of Via España onto Calle 42, with no traffic light or stop sign and lanes that aren't so wide and aren't well marked.


Crossing the same intersection as above in the opposite direction, vehicles come rushing up from behind pedestrians' backs, coming into their field of  view from the blind side in an instant  if they are looking forward at the crosswalk they intend to use.
