      1. From a Nov. 2021 story where two pedestrians were struck on GM road as they attempted to retrieve a mattress.
        “At this time, poor lighting, dark clothing and the pedestrians illegally in the roadway are contributing factors in the collision.”

      2. Ok, and? He/she still isn’t wrong. It’s a bad spot to be trying to go across when you have crosswalks near by in both directions. Also majority of the time they are just walking, taking their sweet time as if the road belongs to them.

        1. You know what we need? Speed tables! The base implemented them because they are very concerned about pedestrian safety, even though no one has ever been hit. Here we have someone who may have actually died and other instances of people being hit while crossing Rte 246 so we should implement speed tables here. Get CAPT DK out here to fix this for us!!

  1. Crosswalks…when used properly…greatly reduce the likelihood of getting struck by a vehicle. Don’t take short cuts.

    1. Cross walks do nothing when people speed and continue to use cell phones while driving
      Roadways are not safe for pedestrian traffic nor bicycle traffic

      1. A well known fact yet the population on GM road doesn’t seem to take notice. Loitering during daylight hour outside liquor stores and car washes. Perhaps if people were gainfully employed we’d see a reduction in these types of accidents on this section of road.

    1. Probably as there doesn’t seem to be a lot damage to his/her truck. It is a ford though so it came ugly from the factory.
