The Forgotten Stop
We walk all the time and find it so frustrating- and so dangerous - the way so many drivers never stop before shooting right across the sidewalk as they exit an alley. When you are driving out of an alley or lane way you must stop BEFORE you cross the sidewalk! That is the law.
It is shocking how many drivers put no thought into the very real fact that a pedestrian might be walking along the sidewalk and they should stop and check before they pull out onto the road.
As a driver, it is your job to yield to pedestrians. STOP before the sidewalk, then carefully inch forward as you check the sidewalk in each direction and then when you are certain all is clear, merge into traffic.
Let’s keep the roads - and sidewalks - safe for everyone!
