On 138th St (there are probably others as well), the Dead End sign cannot be read by drivers coming from the East or West due to the angle of the sign and the tree that grow in front of it. As a result cars and large trucks turn onto 138th, thinking it is a through street. This is particularly unfortunate for the trucks, as the cul de sac at the end is too small for them to easily maneuver and they have to pull onto resident's lawns and into driveways too small and thin for their trucks. Perhaps an unobscured V-shaped Dead End sign facing East and West at the corner of 138th St and 126th Ave, including a No Truck sign, would be helpful and greatly appreciated.

Something really has to be done with the jay walkers in the Largo area. I drive up and down East\West Bay and Roosevelt every day and see blatant jay walking. Some cross the street, in traffic, making traffic slow down, and there would be a crosswalk just a few feet away. I saw a woman just yesterday walking across the street to a bus stop. Crossing where there wasn't a crosswalk, making traffic stop. Several people honked their horns and she gave them a middle finger. Unacceptable. This is dangerous behavior. Not only for motorist but for the person committing the offense. I am asking that the Largo PD step up their efforts and get the word out that if someone does this, you're going to get busted. Before long, everyone will realize that Largo doesn't tolerate this behavior and most people will stop. Get the word out then back up those words with action. The reason people do it is because there isn't much enforcement so people know they can get away with it. You will always have those that don't care. But at this rate, any change is good. The issue is out of control. Every-single-day I see them. Needs to stop. I guarantee that someone will get hit and killed if this isn't controlled. A 17 year old girl died today because she thought it was OK to not use a crosswalk.

By encouragement and incentives Largo has lead the way in the area for its recycling initiative, but it lacks in it's solar use. It baffles me that with all the sun we get down here that there are so few solar panels, especially on our public, parks, and city buildings. During a time of cut backs and financial struggle why is it that very little is being done to use a free over abundant energy source. Since Largo seems to be ahead of the curve in green initiatives in the county why don't we go all out and lead in the green energy saving field as well.
