Residents say median on Hunts Point Avenue causing car accidents

Some Bronx residents say a median that sits in the middle of Hunts Point Avenue is causing car accidents and car tires to blow out almost on a daily basis.

Residents say the road divider is causing motorist to make an illegal U-turn in the middle of the road. Business owners on that part of Hunts Point Avenue near Coster Street claim the median is also hurting businesses. They say the road is so narrow that cars can?t double park, which they believe keeps customers from coming in.

Residents say they have already met with a few city agencies but so far nothing has been done.
