  1. I am really tired of watching people run the stoplight up there! It’s ridiculous. So sad this happened, but it’s a great opportunity for all drivers of all vehicles to wake up, be more alert, and stop ‘bending’ the rules to suit their selfish hurry. Sorry — but having nearly been hit by a few drivers while I was two feet into a cross walk, I’m a bit annoyed.
