Crossing needs attention

I agree with letter writer Mr. Bajwa on the need for a flag person at the intersection of 72 Avenue and 124 Street.

This particular intersection is a busy intersection, especially for pedestrians.

I also agree on the need to update crosswalk signs.

Ideally, there should be lights on the crosswalks (if it is not by the intersection) because it is really hard to see people crossing the road in the winter months, as it gets dark too soon.

It does not help when it is raining, reducing the visibility even more.

I respectfully disagree on the need for speed bumps as they frustrate drivers and drivers try to make up for the “missed speed” by pushing the accelerator even more to catch up, resulting in releasing more bad gases (by burning more gas )in the air.

I thank Mr. Bajwa for bringing this issue up.
