Protect Andover pedestrians
After my son's stroller was struck by a hit-and-run driver while crossing with a walk light, and hearing others' stories of the dangers to pedestrians in Andover's Town Center, I'd like to propose changes be made to help protect those on foot in the area.
Some suggestions made so far:
1. Installation of flashing crosswalk lights with floodlights illuminating the crosswalks, such as those at Phillips Academy.
2. Raised crosswalks at the mid-block crosswalks in front of Boston Running and The Savings Bank.
3. Hand-held crosswalk "flags" such as those implemented by Arlington: http://www.arlingtonma.gov/home/showdocument?id=2272
Please consider adding your name to let the Town know that you would be interested in seeing improvements made, and feel free to add any comments with suggestions of your own. Thank you!
