Keep eyes peeled for pedestrians

Editor, The Record:

You’ve seen me frantically waving my arms in the air before I step in the crosswalk, and heaven forbid, make you late.

It’s 6:30 a.m. Aug. 11 and one pick-up truck didn’t signal to show he was turning west onto Lougheed Highway from Cedar Street. The next intersection east, the tan sedan wasn’t even looking in my direction, but looking for automobiles while inching onto Lougheed westbound.

I could have suffered two broken legs if I was in the crosswalk, and on my light, I might add.
