The temporary signs in the crosswalks on East Chestnut and East High streets indicate to motorists that they must stop for pedestrians.

    It’s nuts. Any idea the fuel we burn nationally stopping for pedestrians? The brakes we wear out? I walk all the time & never had a problem before this pedestrian protection do-gooder stuff went viral with the law. Pedestrians don’t even look. We’re training idiots. “Stop & look both ways” is the sort of sense that’s gone extinct in America. They had a pedestrian cross walk at the govt county building on E High St before they had one at St Vincent school ! For the bureacrats,of course. If they’d walk a few yards to the light they’d lose weight, save costs to obam0care …for a little while.I mean, why the heck not?

    I have seen pedestrians walk right into the crosswalk and attempt to cross when I am entering into the crosswalk with my car. The pedestrians also need t be aware when a car is entering into the crosswalk it isn’t a good or safe idea to cross. I think both drivers and pedestrians are responsible for safe crossing and drivingnn

    When a driver defies such a rule or law, the result can vary from an annoyed pedestrian to a dead one.nnAn RISK:REWARD ratio of sufficient severity, can motivate the drivers to obey the law and extend common courtesy.
