    Stop for pedestrians: the zebra crossing outside the aquarium


Dear Sir,

Every morning I take bus No 10 or 11 to the Bermuda Aquarium, Museum and Zoo to volunteer.

The pedestrian crossing that is right next to the bus stop across the street from the aquarium, whenever I press the button to cross the street, I stop and pause before I cross.

So the other morning, I pressed the button to cross. I stopped and paused, looked both ways before I crossed, and just as I was about put one foot on the ground, before I even made one step, two cars flew right past me and didnít even stop.

What part of stop when people are crossing a crosswalk do people not understand. I think itís the ďCĒ part.

I have seen police presence in our parking lot right across the street from the aquarium, making sure people are not speeding. Itís just really dangerous that people donít even think to stop when people are about to cross at a crosswalk.
