Walk signs and candles

 

continued

LPI is also in use at Catherine and Glen (where a turning bus killed a pedestrian several years ago), at three intersections on S. State near campus (at William, Liberty, and North University), at Liberty and Thompson, and at Pauline and Stadium.

Q: Do you know anything about the candles at the corner of Washtenaw and Golfside?

A: Candles, teddy bears, and plastic flowers decorate a metal post at the corner of a trashy, abandoned lot. Notes written on the post in marker, now almost illegible, indicate the site is a memorial for twenty-four-year-old Brendon Preslar of Ann Arbor. Late in the night last August he ran a red light on his motorcycle and crashed into a car. His life ended at this spot.
