The Beatles never came to Carleton Place, nor do we have an Abbey Road. But, we have two small crosswalks on Bridge Street, that each time I look at them I think of Abbey Road. But that is just me!
The other day I watched an elderly woman attempt to cross the one almost adjacent to the pet store. I counted 9 cars that went by her and no one stopped. Today I tried to cross, and 7 cars went by before I was able to cross.
There is also a similar issue to the crosswalk by The Blossom Shop. Signs are very clearly marked “Caution Cars are Not Legally Required to Stop”. So, because they are not required to stop, a lot of them don’t. Please courteously stop for people!
Please be aware of those stop signs at Albert and Beckwith, as there is some sloppy driving going on, and accidents are happening. Just food for thought folks!
