Driv­ers fail­ing to heed users of cross­walks

The Standard (St. Catharines) - - Opinion -

Do you feel safe when us­ing cross­walks, when in most cases ve­hi­cles are stopped on them or close to the lines, caus­ing one to step out in to traf­fic to get by?

This is a se­ri­ous prob­lem in Wel­land as it seems most of the time ve­hi­cles at stop lights stop right on the cross­walk lines and even past them.

In a num­ber of cases, es­pe­cially at Se­away Mall and Wal­mart where there are cross­walks, ve­hi­cles drive right through when a pedes­trian tries to cross.
