    In addition to this, a neighbor reported that her dog was hit while she and the dog were walking in the crosswalk at Roxbury and 30th.  It was a hit and run with the driver not even slowing down. The dog had minor injuries fortunately.

      Sorry to hear that – didn’t hear anything on emergency radio about that, and no tips. Hope she filed a police report.

     The dangerous driving going on in WS is very scary. Yesterday, Thanksgiving, I was driving south on Alki Ave when a car driving north swerved across the middle line into south bound traffic to go around two bicyclists and just missed hitting my car by hair.

    Drivers: Slow down, pay attention, get off your phone, use turning signals, and turn your damn lights on (it’s dark now!)Pedestrians: Look both ways before crossing the street – not every driver is paying attention, or can see you and you should be looking out for yourself too. Just because they SHOULD stop doesn’t mean they will. Don’t be that arrogant person that gets killed because “they have to stop for me”Bicyclists: Obey traffic laws please. 

Sorry, comment time is over.
