It’s Time to Get Out Paint for a Crosswalk at Jefferson, Wiggins

To the Editor:

I agree with Brenda Battat’s request in last week’s Town Topics Mailbox [September 14] that there should be a marked crosswalk at the corner of Jefferson Road and Wiggins Street.

It is a busy road and extends several miles to what used to be the Township.

I see young people, especially, crossing there. I myself cross there occasionally, if there is no traffic at the moment on Wiggins.

I remember many years ago, before the old house was torn down and the big duplex was built, there was a fatal accident right at that spot.

Since this seems to be a legal request, better to play it safe. Let’s get out the white paint and do it.
