Watch For Walkers

I would like to ask the people of this great state to please stop for those who are crossing the road. I am a victim of an auto-pedestrian accident. I was hit in a crosswalk at which I stopped and waited to go. A truck stopped, so I went, but then he went—and down I went.

I think more accidents could be prevented if you stop when you see someone trying to cross the street. Secondly, if the car in front of you is stopped to let someone cross, then you need to also stop and not try to pass them. Many are being hurt because drivers are being careless and in too much of a hurry.
