The Oregonian Editorial Board published a timely piece in today's paper about the need for all of us who drive to take stock of our actions and do a better job looking out for people walking and biking on our roads. Here's the opening:
You need to have a "full and frank" conversation with yourself this evening. Looking in the mirror, you the driver ought to give you the walker a piece of your mind, and then switch roles.
Quite simply, both of you -- and all of us -- need to do a better job of paying attention. This year is shaping up as a terrible one for Oregon pedestrians.
