Solutions for safer passage


Saturday evening, I watched a car drive through the pedestrian walk on 128 Street at 17 Avenue.


Saturday evening, I watched a car drive through the pedestrian walk on 128 Street at 17 Avenue.

Two elementary-school-aged boys were waiting for the cars to stop, at about 6:30 p.m. Then the second and third car zoomed by, taking no notice of the young lads. A fourth car came past the other way.

The older boy lifted his arms in disbelief. I was livid. I felt that the boys had witnessed a terrible example of adult behaviour.

On my way home , I thought that perhaps my car, waiting to turn left towards the library, blocked the view for the three drivers passing from behind me. Kids are short when they are eight or nine.

The answer is a pedestrian-cross light similar to the one by Crescent Park Elementary. The answer is for drivers to drive with care.

I hope those boys are OK.

I’ll feel better if this letter unnerves others as well.

Please take care, adults.
