David Smith: Thinks one parking spot ought to be eliminated

Comment on new crosswalks - his idea for greater pedestrian safety

By David Smith
Personal commentary

Wth all these crosswalk improvements on the square, I want to bring attention to a concern of mine.

There is always a big black truck parked in the last shoulder parking spot on Jamestown street as you approach the square.

When traveling in a car you cannot see a pedestrian over this truck.

You can never know if someone is waiting to cross or already coming across until you are completely on the crosswalk.

This truck is parked in that spot everyday!

I just hope the powers that be would have a look and maybe present an idea to may even eliminate this spot all together.

Thanks for taking time to hear my opinion and concerns. David Smith
