Wednesday's article includes quotes from another Mt. Lebanon resident who vows to be more vigilant while walking in the future.
Yes, we all need to be careful, and I understand that woman's concerns.
But where are the similar vows of greater care from drivers? Here are a few to get us started:
"From now on I will stop at stop signs." Or, "I will drive more slowly through intersections." Here's a radical one: "I will recognize that pedestrians have the right of way."
Too often we assume the burden rests entirely on the person outside the car. In addition to being a pedestrian and a cyclist, I am a driver. When I operate a machine that weighs several thousand pounds and has an accelerator, there's a very big burden on me.
