Another Crosswalk Cop Out

Friday’s Oregonian has an article about the City lowering speeds on Capitol Highway.

While we’re all in favor of lowering speeds for safety, we also note that article indicates the City refused a suggestion from the neighborhood association to add a crosswalk. Will Stevens of PDOT is quoted: “adding crosswalks without a traffic signal or without a center refuge for pedestrians would not be safe.”

So just to give PDOT some ideas we’ve collected our various posts about crosswalks in different cities and countries in one category for easy viewing.
