Iqaluit drivers: no respect for pedestrian crosswalks

“Are you really in such a rush that you cannot wait 60 seconds…?”

By NUNATSIAQ NEWS

Most mornings, I park my truck at my office and walk my three-year-old son to his daycare.

The purpose of this is to teach my son about road safety. I am teaching him to cross the road only at stop signs or crosswalks, and to make sure he looks for oncoming traffic before he crosses the road.

Every morning, at least one driver refuses to respect our safety and the rules of traffic and insists on driving into the intersection while we are crossing the road.

This thwarts my efforts to teach my son about road safety and puts our lives in danger.

To those drivers, I ask this: are you really in such a rush that you cannot wait 60 seconds to let a mother and her three-year-old boy cross the road safely?
