The recent rain has reminded me we have a couple of problem areas in South Surrey that should be addressed before something serious happens.
The first is the median on 152 Street, between Starbucks and Tim Hortons. Heading north, the curb that juts out where the buses stop is impossible to see until you’re practically on top of it. I think some paint or reflectors would be useful.
The second is the crosswalks between McDonald’s and Fat Burger. Again, you can’t see pedestrians until it’s too late. The lighting is seriously bad.
With all the glaring lights from the businesses, I don’t think pedestrians realize how hard it is to see them.
That said, it would be nice if pedestrians would stop before they cross. There’s nothing more frustrating than someone who’s walking the same direction as you’re driving, who decides to take a quick turn and walk in front of your car.
