    That bend from Cadman Plaza West onto Court Street has got to be one of the most dangerous corners in the city, and completely exacerbated by people double parking their cars along the way, which the driver of this car apparently had been doing according to the report in AM news. IMHO, there should be speed bumps on the west side of the stretch of CPW from Pierrepont to Montague to slow cars down before they hit that bend, as it’s impossible to see pedestrians or double parked cars until it’s too late.
