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?
