I am a driver and a pedestrian, and take all the precautions as both. I have also seen the rules flaunted by both sides.
Drivers in a haste to pass before the yellow signal turns red and pedestrians hoping to make that dash across.
What I do not understand is why we do not have the signals for pedestrians to cross separate from the signal for drivers to turn left or right.
Then, drivers are not anxiously waiting to turn and pedestrians are not caught unaware. We have that at Granville and St. Albans streets.
Since everyone is in a rush these days, the old road ethics do not exist anymore.
Also, the street lighting is poor, especially in rainy weather, that both parties do not see one another, with or without lights.
