Life In The West Ward: Traffic Safety
This man is upset by those who are not respectful of the rules of the road in the West Ward.
"What happens around here, you'll have a school bus with their lights a-flashing, and there'll be cars that pass by; they'll come out of the side streets. They don't stop. Down here at Northampton and 7th, one morning when I was going to an appointment, a school bus was there, they picked students up, and there was cars coming out of 7th, not stopping. There were seven of them, plus a city truck, a pick-up truck, and turned right up into Wood Avenue without stopping. And a couple of them had come down 7th and they only stopped because the bus driver had blown the horn. That's one issue that I have, and the other is the safety of the crosswalks, both for young people and adults. And with this (points to his walker), I sometimes get told, 'Get moving!' in not the most pleasant way. The thing that bothers me is that people don't respect these crosswalks. They say you might as well think they're a joke 'cause of the way they behave with them."
