Description

Unless you step out into the crosswalk, and risk getting run over, the vast majority of drivers don't yield to the pedestrians trying to cross the street at this intersection. I've seen it happen in front of the police who've done nothing about it. Once, in front of the police, I had to step out in the street and put up my hands to help a woman with her young child cross the street while at least two drivers laid on their horns.

Can we please get an officer who will do their job and actually stop drivers and give them tickets for this behavior? It is getting dangerous and I really don't want to see anybody get hit.
