Lights needed at all cross­walks

Re: “Ex­plore all av­enues for pedes­trian safety” (Al­li­son Hanes, Oct. 17)

As a driver and pedes­trian, I am of­ten con­fused by the fact that cross­walks vary in de­sign, size and colour across Mon­treal.

Driv­ers in an un­fa­mil­iar area have only a brief mo­ment to rec­og­nize that they are ap­proach­ing a cross­walk, and easy recog­ni­tion would help avoid ac­ci­dents.

In Hamp­stead, sev­eral cross­walks have a flash­ing light. Why not stan­dard­ize all cross­walks in Mon­treal like this?
