Reply To: Negligent drivers at corner of Oregon and California



This is just one of many near misses for pedestrians at this intersection. There are other documented cases, and it’s happened to me there, too. SDOT should change this to an all ways pedestrian only cycle or a leading pedestrian interval intersection. A pedestrian should not have to stop in the middle of a crosswalk to look both ways. For sure the diver should have kept their eyes peeled and did not. You can’t avoid all driver mistakes and negligence but you can design the intersection to be more safe for people walking.
