Letter to the Editor: Pedestrians still have to be on lookout


Published (Volume 76, No. 29)


Dear Editor:

It is a big problem trying to cross the street in between the EPS building and the Elam Center. Drivers seem as if they do not see you, or they have more important thing to do besides stopping and allowing us to cross the street.

People you are supposed to make a complete stop just as if you were at a stop sign. When people are in the crosswalk areas they have the right away, until they have reached the sidewalks.

It is even worse at night trying to go to the Elam Center or Fieldhouse. If you do not cross before a car come, then you will be almost hit. It is not just the students who does not stop, it is everybody.

I am not trying to scorn the drivers that do stop, it is the drivers who do not stop that gets me. We should not have to stop walking at the crosswalk for a vehicle to pass. They should stop for us until we pass.

Unless drivers become aware of how important stopping is someone will get seriously hurt. Drivers let’s wake up and pay more attention to what is going on.
