The city needs to put more stop signs and lights downtown and elsewhere.

Today,i was almost hit by a truck while crossing the street within the white lines. When I confronted the driver, he emphasized that there was no stop sign and that I should have waited on the sidewalk. I had to inform him that pedestrians always have right of way. He apologized after several minutes of reflection.


It's unfortunate you had a near miss. And, you were right confront and discuss the situation with the truck driver. But, I must quibble with your next to last sentence: pedestrians don't always have the right of way! Pedestrians always have the right of way at *uncontrolled* intersections.
