C’mon drivers, stay alert
Re: Pedestrian Crossings.
I, like many others, use the pedestrian crossing next to the YMCA almost every weekday. Almost every day, cars fail to stop for me as I try to cross. I have had to jump out of the way of cars at least 10 times this year and it is only February!
I am careful to watch for traffic and make every effort to be courteous to drivers. I feel like I am going to get hit by a car and that person will not bother to stop. It is like the drivers don't even see me.
I have seen the same issue with people trying to use the crossing at Ballance Street Village. Drivers ignore the pedestrians.
C'mon Gisborne drivers, stay alert. No one wants a hit-and-run here.
