Recently, I have encountered a number of polite and law abiding drivers. However, as a pedestrian, it seems that fewer and fewer drivers are in this category and yield the right of way to pedestrians, especially along E. Union and E. Cherry. E. Cherry has long been the worst. Remember, pedestrians are not suppose to risk their lives to stop autos. Drivers are suppose to make it comfortable for a waiting pedestrian to cross.
You censored pinebeetle’s comment? This site has really gone overboard in the censorship dept. I think we need new editors.
This is especially important this time of year when the hours of daylight are so short. I have noticed an improvement in this, though, at the intersection of 24th Ave and East Union, and I appreciate it.
It may be worth noting that some of the worst offenders are city-owned vehicles and Access vans!
I agree that it is especially discouraging when publicly owned vehicles don’t stop.
