Safety first

Letter writer says The crosswalk at Highway 97 and 21st Avenue, by the hospital, is dangerous

The crosswalk at Highway 97 and 21st Avenue, by the hospital, is dangerous.

Make sure the vehicle in the left-hand lane has stopped before you cross. My dog and I cross there twice a day, and when cars have eventually stopped for us, we have almost been hit numerous times by the vehicle in the outside lane not stopping.

Drivers, if a vehicle in the inside lane has stopped at a crosswalk, that usually indicates there is a pedestrian crossing the road.
