The flashing lights on this PED Signal do *not* respond to button pushes from pedestrians. This issue is especially significant at night, when people want to cross Midnight Pass after viewing the sunset. There is a *serious* problem with follow-up on this important safety issue. County trucks come and go, but the problem remains unsolved. This has gone on for about a year. Is there any wonder that the Sarasota-Bradenton area is No. 6 in the United States in the number of fatal crashes involving pedestrians. (See today’s newsfeed from WWSB, Channel 7.)
Will someone *please* take this safety issue seriously, and solve the problem once and for all?
