Letter: Never had problems at new NOTL crosswalk
Letter to the editor. File

Dear editor:

The June 6 story, “New crossover lights are a safety hazard, residents say,” is an interesting article, however I think more reporting and research is needed.

I live nearby and use this crosswalk quite often. I have never felt unsafe.

At the same time, it’s a good idea to review the procedure on how to use it, in case there are others who are not familiar with doing so.

I remember the main point made on the introduction of the crosswalk is to push the button and wait until all cars have come to a complete stop, on both sides, in all lanes. Then walk.

It has worked for me.

However, I agree that flashing lights directly over the road would be another improvement for drivers.
