What will it take for drivers to realize the pedestrian walk between Depot Street and Honcho is a place to legally STOP and WAIT for people to cross within the crossing lines?
My running group and I cross Main Street every Saturday morning at least twice and I cannot remember a week where we did not have to stop and sometimes jump back out of the way of a car crossing right through the pedestrian lines.
Last week, even an Oakland County sheriff’s car sailed right through, no lights or sirens so it was not an emergency.
I and my group, especially those with children, would like to see the crosswalk monitored by police who issue tickets.
They would make a lot more money than the parking tickets given out, which have no victim, or possible victim and perhaps it would result in a safer crossing for all of us.
Otherwise, please consider flashing lights or some other way to warn drivers of its presence. Spread the word!
