Davis needs crosswalk safety

By From page A4 | June 26, 2013

In response to Beulah Amsterdam’s letter appearing in The Davis Enterprise, I have experienced repeatedly motorists “swizzing” through well-marked pedestrian intersections, as I attempt to cross Anderson Road at Radcliffe in particular. Even with a city of Davis Police officer parked in a police car on Anderson, north of Radcliffe and clearly in view of the crosswalk, cars didn’t stop for me, nor did the officer take any action.

Citing page 24 of the California Driver Handbook, under the heading Crosswalk: “Pedestrians have the right of way in marked or unmarked crosswalks.” Just think of the additional revenue the city could collect if they enforced this law by issuing tickets.
