RE: Six pedestrians hit on crosswalks along Second Avenue West

“Could use a pedestrian overhang sign so drivers see that there is a crosswalk there. The parked cars block the pedestrian sign on the side of the road, the road is atop a slight hill, which can make visibility of pedestrians going out on to the crosswalk difficult for drivers to see them until last minute. Maybe add flashing yellow lights to the sign, maybe have podiums to the sides of the road with reflectors to remind drivers to watch for pedestrians, as well not to turn so close into the corners. And better lighting for night time driving, lighting can be upon a podium that could be activated by the pedestrian to change colour when they touch it and light up the area as they cross. Better signs to remind about sun shining down the road at specific time during the seasons.”

“Maybe this video will give pedestrians and idea of what the driving conditions are like in the rain and dark, and they will be a little more careful about stepping out in front of vehicles.”

Meaghan Brooke Well

“The crosswalk areas are especially dark when it’s raining at night. I know I drive slow because I can’t see pedestrians until I’m actually to the crosswalk. Maybe crosswalk lights that blink when someone’s crossing? Just a thought.”

Caroline Dangeli

“I am an older guy who walks through town most days shopping and just getting some air. I started planning my route so I can cross at one of the many traffic lights we have, in what is a relatively small downtown. I believe as a pedestrian I have a responsibility to reduce the risk of an accident take plan the safest route. I am impatient sometimes and do not heed my own advice. I think now I will be more vigilant and go to the crossing lights more often.”
