I was driving from JPA Extended toward Fontaine/Jefferson Park Avenue over the little bridge right before the Wayside chicken place – something I do all the time, as I live in the area – and a woman with two toddlers glared at me from the side of the road because I didn’t stop to let her and her kids cross.
I was thinking how dangerous it was for her to be crossing the bridge with two walking children – it’s very pedestrian unfriendly right there, with no real sidewalk on the other side and zooming drivers…
Only after my husband said that a new crosswalk had been put there did I know why she was giving me the evil eye.
You can’t see the crosswalk, as a driver. And being new, it’s not something you’re going to try and see. And it’s at such an odd place.
Obviously, someone thought this would be a helpful addition for those walking on this road.
I think it’s a set up for disaster.
