Watch out for pedestrians

Dear Editor:

Last Tuesday, April 30, 2013, I was walking along side the west side of the theater in Cambridge, which parallels Main Street. I saw a woman crossing Main Street from Woody’s Auto to the theater. It was approximately 11:20 a.m. in broad daylight, she was in the crosswalk, and partway across, when another woman in a white car made a left-hand turn and almost hit the pedestrian woman. The driver barely stopped to say she was sorry.

A month earlier as I was walking back to my apartment, on a Friday night, crossing Highway 95 southbound from the Allstate office corner to the Q Mandarin corner, with the green light and a walk signal. A young man in a sporty car made a left turn in front of me. A few feet closer and I could have kicked a dent in his driver’s side with my work boots.

Also the next morning, trying to cross Main Street west from the Q Mandarin to Ace Tack with the green light and walk signal, a woman was parked on the crosswalk waiting for the light to change. Drivers are supposed to stop behind the crosswalk. To all drivers out there; please try to remember this.
