Look before you walk

(KPLR) – In Wednesday’s “The Way It Oughta Be”, look before you walk. Before anyone accuses me of being anti-pedestrian, I just want to say one thing.

I once lived in the Central West End and did not own a car. I walked everywhere.

So I think I can see things from the pedestrian point of view. Having said that, here's my concern.

I see far too many shoppers walking out of stores and into the parking lot without even looking.

They just dart out and must think its okay because a car is supposed to yield.

At least look before walk.  It will help drivers be a little more understanding of anyone who is walking.

I'm JB, and that's “The Way It Oughta Be”.
