Drivers need to pay closer attention to pedestrians in crosswalks

Posted 26 October 2021 at 7:39 am


Over the past 3 years, I have had issues with crosswalk problems. Meaning numerous times, I have almost been struck in the crosswalk, in two areas – North Main Street, East State Street, on the Post Office side and South Main Street and Rt. 31 Crosby’s side.

As of writing this, it happened again on Oct. 19. Drivers need to be aware of people crossing. Once a car came within 12 inches or less – it almost struck me.

Everyone needs to be cautious, paying attention around them. Some drivers think that they are the only ones out there. So please folks, be careful, look, drive smartly. It’s your life that can be saved.
