Drive with care

May 25, 2011 - Dear Editor,

Clarkston area drivers need to be reminded about traffic rules, specifically those relating to yielding to pedestrians and cyclists when they have the walk signal.

I was riding my bike and  crossing  Main at Waldon heading west, May 12. When I received the "walk" signal, I proceeded to cross and a lady almost hit me.

Similarly when I crossed Main at Clarkston Road going back home, I was in the intersection with the "walk" signal when a lady on her phone noticed me when she was a foot from my bike.

Drivers need to be reminded that pedestrians and cyclists have the right of way in these situations.

 Drivers in this area have absolutely no respect whatsoever for pedestrians and cyclists. The behavior is not only illegal and dangerous but downright rude. Very often these drivers have their kids in the car so they are also passing  this behavior on to their children.
