Crosswalk roulette

In a two-day stretch recently, I had three people drive right through various crosswalks when I was halfway through on a walk light.

I work in downtown Qualicum Beach. In a two-day stretch recently, I had three people drive right through various crosswalks when I was halfway through on a walk light.

Two of these vehicles would have hit me if I was not watching them and jumped back. The drivers were not elderly.

I think that everyone who uses these crosswalks on a daily basis will agree that it is like playing Russian Roulette. Come on people, please be aware of pedestrians. It’s just a matter of time before someone is seriously hurt or killed.
