With all the hooplah over the parking rates, new meter hours, kiosks, cops for utility work, etc, it seems like the casual scofflaw is being missed – and they are the ones that create the dangerous scenarios for pedestrians. Cases in point: u-turns into parking spots on Broad, Chestnut & Oak, speeds in excess of 25 going into and out of the CBD, and blatant cellphone use throughout the village by drivers. Until the police take a hard look at these motor vehicle infractions and ticket the offenders, pedestrian safety will be second to revenue production to fund Garagezilla. (Note to pedestrians…pay attention! You do not have a force field around you for protection, so take a break from your phones and don’t jaywalk.)
