UR Opinion

Eyes Open When Driving Please

Corey Evans

By Corey Evans

I would just like to remind drivers about a somewhat new crosswalk we have here in Cobourg
This crosswalk is at the corner of College and King St. leading across to our Victoria Park
As I was stopped at this crosswalk to allow a senior couple to cross, I noticed 5 cars heading West on King St that DID NOT STOP for them. This crosswalk IS and MENT FOR us drivers to stop if there are people waiting to cross the road. This area is marked with signs and a PAINTED ROAD to indicate such a crossing.
Once all cars cleared this walk, this couple continued to go across in front of me , and at the same time , blew me a kiss as a thank you for noticing and stopping for them.
This couple could have been hit by the cars coming Westbound if they saw me stopped for them BUT DIDNT NOTICE the others not stopping
I just ask all drivers in the area of St. Peters Church on King St to PLEASE notice there is indeed a crossing there. I would not like to hear of anyone getting hurt
