I was almost hit by a car today in the Greenlife parking lot. Within the lined crosswalk, I moved slowly with my walking stick: If not for the slowness, there might have been an accident. A driver turned right in front of me across the walk. I stopped, stunned, and heard a woman behind me say, "That was close." I said, "He didn't even look, did he?" "No, he didn't!" she responded.
This is a huge reminder (picture it on a billboard) to all drivers! I understand that N.C. state law says drivers must give rights-of-way to pedestrians in a marked walkway. I live downtown and often see drivers charge ahead with no attention to crossers. (Why aren't there signs?) Be careful, slow down, look around and give way to pedestrians! You could save a life.
