Concerned about Prince Rupert pedestrians

I am writing to voice my concern over pedestrians.


I am writing to voice my concern over pedestrians.

I wonder if they are aware that they should make ‘eye contact’ with the driver of the vehicle coming at them before stepping off the curb? Or…when they are in a parking lot, like Rupert Square, in some cases drivers have ‘blind’ spots and do not always see the pedestrian.

As a driver, I have been in this situation a few times…Drivers do not have eyes in the back of their heads. I know when I am the pedestrian, I always like to make sure the driver sees me before I chance stepping off the curb into the cross walk! It’s common sense.

So, to all the pedestrians and drivers alike, act and drive defensively and take nothing for granted.

I would also like to give kudos to all the gardeners in Prince Rupert, the downtown area looked great this summer!! Charlotte Rowse and her gang deserve a big round of applause for manning the large planter boxes!!!!

Thank you for the space.
