Bakersfield Assemblyman Rudy Salas is calling for improvements of State Route 184 in front of Foothill High School.The demand for action in east Bakersfield comes after a student was seriously injured. Salas sent a letter to Caltrans asking what can be done to make the crossing safer after this week’s accident. He noted the intersection has faded crosswalk markings and says two students hurt in 2014 were struck by a distracted driver. Only the state can make improvements on Morning Drive because it’s a state highway.
