New Traffic Laws re: Pedestrian Crossings


Gazette Article today
Glad someone had the stones to speak up about Derek’s little sabre rattle over the toddler who was killed … and the “sweeping” legislation Derek & his cronies shuffled in last session.
King has it right (sort of) that the new Offenses will only add to our prison population.  It does NOT address the source of the danger nor any recipe to correct the behaviour that causes the danger in the first place.

  • Move ALL crossings BEHIND the layby/bus’ rear; parallel traffic will be better able to see what’s happening
  • On Main roads, add the flashers AND EDUCATE TO PUBLIC TO USE THEM (not dash across like 3-4 people I saw this past weekend)
  • Educate bus passengers NOT to attempt to cross until AFTER the bus has moved on
