Don’t blame pedestrians for all the local fatalities

In his recent letter, “Walk this way,” Henry Hertel blamed pedestrians for the many local pedestrian deaths. Has Mr. Hertel ever attempted to cross at a crosswalk, at night, in between lighted intersections?

There’s three of them in my neighborhood. I’ve tested them, wearing a red jacket, just to see if a driver would slow down as I pretended to cross in the crosswalk. About 90 percent of the time, if I had gone any farther, I wouldn’t be here writing this letter thanks to oblivious drivers speeding down the street.

I invite Mr. Hertel to do some tests in his own neighborhood or in any area of this city.
