Pedestrians must share the responsibility


Re: Another glance needed to protect pedestrians, letter to editor, Oct. 31

Good points made by the writer but the same applies to pedestrians; they too must be as aware at crossings and that awareness must extend to actually obeying the pedestrian signals.

Too often, whether I am walking, cycling or driving, I see pedestrians entering crosswalks after the “countdown" has begun or when the white walk signal has changed to red.

This is not only illegal, it is dangerous.
