127 Beekman St Beacon, NY 12508
As a walking commuter whose only reward for making the arduous climb up the W. Main St. hill from the train station is to wait for all the driving commuters I just got off the train with pass me by at ~45mph until there's a backup of cars that I can cross between, I would like to see more enforcement and better marking of the crosswalk. There have already been signs posted, but they've had little to no effect. The crosswalk itself could benefit from the cross-hatch stripes afforded to other area crosswalks, but perhaps a police presence would have the most effect (be it Beacon or MTA enforcement, as the MTA has a station not a quarter mile down the road.)
I have to say, once in a blue moon someone actually stops, and to those few people if you're reading this, thank you.· Reported by vynsane · Flag Flagged

The other day I was crossing Main Street at South Brett, heading to Key Food, and a Beacon Express Cab drove through the crosswalk when we were almost halfway across. I yelled he was supposed to stop -- the driver was a man -- and he yelled something back like I wasn't in the crosswalk. But we were.
Can the Beacon Police have a chat with the Cab company, and remind them of the law.
Beacon Police have been doing a great job on this front, but the cabbies are really terrible.
