Watch for for pedestrians

Dear Editor:

Twice, in the span of nine days, I have been almost hit by people while I was in the crosswalk with the green light and walk signal, and wearing a safety vest.

On Saturday night, June 29, as I was crossing Main Street east to west, an older couple in a newer Lincoln Mercury, cut in front of me, making me stop in the middle of the street. They were close enough that I could see the hood ornament.

Then Sunday afternoon, July 7, as I was crossing Main Street again east to west, a gray minivan almost hit me.

I’m going to start carrying a pencil and a notebook and start taking down license plate numbers.
