Re: “3 taken to hospital after car hits them” (TNT, 10-9).
The article relates how three people were seriously hurt when they were hit by a car while crossing Pacific Avenue near 134th Street in the Parkland area. They were not jaywalkers; they were in a crosswalk.
When the state redid Pacific Avenue some years ago, I noticed that the closer the crosswalks were to Pacific Lutheran University, the safer they were – such as having flashing lights and crossing signals to ensure pedestrian safety.
What is it going to take to put that technology to work further south on this road – someone to actually get killed? Can we not please do something before it’s too late for some poor “sitting duck” who thinks he’s safe in a crosswalk?
