Motorists urged to watch for pedestrians

I have a concern at the Intersection of Hocking and Yale W. where my son catches bus everyday to Summer School. He gets off the city bus in front of Husky and has to cross every day until July 29th to go to Macintosh.

I have a concern at the Intersection of Hocking and Yale W. where my son catches bus everyday to Summer School. He gets off the city bus in front of Husky and has to cross every day until July 29th to go to Macintosh.

He has almost been hit twice now because some drivers don’t have patience to wait while he crosses the road. They start turning as he is walking in the middle of the road. He abides by the crosswalk.

Today he was terrified because he almost got hit. I told my son from now on to take license plate numbers. Today a lady in a white truck almost hit him (you know who you are).

I am also a pedestrian because I choose to be; I use the transit. I don’t miss driving at all because there is so many crazy drivers out there.

No wonder why the ICBC rates go up. I ask you please be careful.
