About the Event
Fred Lawrence Walker, 70, of 3258 Benjamin Banneker Street in Exmore's New Road Community, observed children playing in the street where the roadway view for cars was obstructed by tree branches and bushes. He knew this presented a dangerous situation; one that created risks for drivers and the neighborhood children. So, Fred grabbed his ax and cleared the overgrown vacant lot blocking line of sight. By hand. By himself. Nicely done, Mr. Walker!
