Ann Pearson: Wants more ticketing to make streets safer
Comments re article 91813 Writer Onus of responsibility vehicles v pedestrian is on driver
By Ann Pearson
Both myself and my children have almost been run down in the cross walks in Columbia and people look at us like we are in the wrong for crossing the street.
I see people constantly ignore traffic signs, including parking in handicapped spaces, but nothing seems to ever happen to them - so they just continue.
I support more ticketing of those who fail to obey the laws before someone gets killed.
/s/ Ann Pearson
Thanks, Ann Pearson - Thanks for your support for safer streets. Ticketing may be the answer, but many of us think providing better driving cues, education, and maybe providing a "coffee time out," for offenders would be of more lasting value. And - just a note - some of retirement age do remember pedestrian deaths on the Square. Whether you idea is carried out or not will depend on the most persuasive arguments presented to City Council, Mayor Hardwick, Sidewalk Committee, the Somerset District 8 office of the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet which is doing so much to make South Central Kentucky Cities so walkable. and, of course, the downtown businesses which will thrive with a more walkable Columbia. - EW
