The crosswalk on 51st St. and Lawton Avenue is the only marked pedestrian crossing on 51st St. between Broadway and Telegraph Avenue (aside from the stoplight at 51st/Shafter). There is regular pedestrian traffic crossing 51st at this location, due in part to students and families walking to Emerson Elementary, but cars rarely stop for pedestrians. When cars do stop, drivers behind them are often not expecting them to stop, and either stop rapidly or swerve into the other lane and keep going - creating additional hazard for pedestrians. Full crosswalk striping and "pedestrian crossing" signage would greatly reduce the perils of crossing 51st St. in this high-traffic location.
