Letter: Watch out for pedestrians

Email

On Sunday, Sept. 2, my sister and I were at 19th Avenue and First Street.

A young man on a three-wheeled bicycle attempted to cross the road. The "walk" light was on.

A guy in a white pickup truck was turning right on a red light and almost struck the young man on the bicycle. The truck driver then pounded on his chest.

What he should have done was put his foot on the brake and let the pedestrian cross.

Wake up, drivers. Stop and wait for a pedestrian in a crosswalk. The pedestrian crossing the road on the "walk" light has the right of way.

Stop and yield to pedestrians. Slow down before you kill someone.
