I live on the east side of Government Street and need to cross at the intersection of Forestbrook every day to get to school at Pen High. I am a Grade 9 student.
I am writing because of problems with traffic on Government Street and the blatant disregard for pedestrians. It is not uncommon for my friends and I to wait for 15 or more cars to pass before one will actually stop … and that’s at a marked crosswalk.
I hope that readers will take this into account and maybe remember that pedestrians have rights too.
