Saving lives with courtesy, caution
Pedestrians must be more careful
We teach our children by the time they are 3 that, when crossing the street, they must look both ways, twice, then cross briskly. [“Could more courtesy save a life?”, NW Monday, Aug. 5.]
Yet there are 500 pedestrian-involved collisions each year in Seattle.
Could somebody explain to me the mentality of walking out in front of a 3,000-pound vehicle that is moving at 30 mph, and hoping the driver sees you?
Having the right of way won’t make you right.
