How many times do we sit at a stoplight, and when it turns green, we take off, without bothering to see if someone is crossing the street? I see that happen at this crosswalk on Brentwood Blvd. at Eulalie Ave quite often. Pedestrians waiting to cross always have the right of way on a green light. Sure you might have to wait a few seconds. Yeah, the guy behind you may honk. The safety of the person(s) crossing is most important.
This crosswalk on Strassner Dr leads pedestrians from Memorial Park back and forth from the YMCA parking lot. It is popular with walkers in the area. Lately, the kids attending camp at the YMCA have used this crosswalk during weekdays. Please drive safely in this area, and be mindful when someone is waiting to cross. As you can see, there is a visible sign indicating the crosswalk. Lets all be aware of these crosswalks in our neighborhood and respect the rights of those who wish to cross. Be careful out there!
