  • Aimee-with summer upon us and kids out of school this is a great reminder. I totally agree with you that it is almost hazardous to walk in this town. I often compare trying to get across Grand Ave. to playing the game Frogger! I can't count the number of times I've come within inches of getting hit. I try to walk as many places as possible, but really have to take into account whether I want to "fight traffic".

    F.Y.I. and just a refresher for some--

    Iowa Drivers Manual states "When required to stop because of a sign or signal, you must stop BEFORE your vehicle reaches the stop line, or a cross walk." "You must yield to pedestrians in or about to enter a crosswalk."
